Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO), chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, followed Sen. John Kerry's (D-MA) lead on Friday, releasing a statement to offer support to the announced senate bid of Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA).
“Ed Markey has spent his career fighting for the people of Massachusetts. He has been a leader on some of the most important issues of our time and has repeatedly taken on the special interests in Washington. At a time when the country needs real leadership that looks out for the middle class, Ed Markey always remembers where he came from and will continue the hard work needed to turn our economy around. He is exactly the kind of leader Massachusetts needs in the US Senate.”
