Democrat state Rep Tom Conroy has decided to withdraw his bid to become a US Senator from Massachusetts. A seasoned political figure with good standing in the state house, yet not willing to run against Elizabeth Warren for the chance to unseat Scott Brown. Read more here at Boston Herald.
He is not the first person to withdraw from the race. Newton Mayor Setti Warren and activist Alan Khazei both quit the race once Elizabeth Warren announced her bid. Also former LG candiate Robert Massie bowed out of the race earlier.
So what gives? Conroy claims he can not run against the better financed Warren who currently has a $3 million campaign fund. Instead, Conroy will go and run for re election to his current seat in the state House.
I say it is a bunch of BS and here is why…
Tom Conroy is willing to stage a 650 mile walk around the state of Massachusetts, but is afraid to spend a few bucks to try and beat Liz Warren? I guess he didn’t really want to be a US Senator afterall. And, if he is afraid of running against Liz Warren because she has a $3 million warchest – then what the heck was he gonna do when he ran against Scott Brown who has $14 million? Had he not even considered that? Lastly, it was earlier this month that he presented his 5 point plan on how to create jobs as part of his campaign to beat Liz Warren. Why the sudden change?
Something here does not make sense. Conroy wanted to win, but he didn’t want to spend money? He wanted to win recently enough that he presented a 5 point plan earlier this month, but suddently quits because his opponent in the primary is too tough?
I have said it before and I will say it again – Liz Warren and the Demcrat party are pushing people out of the race. Liz Warren is not so strong and smart and brave that a group of able bodied men and seasoned politicians faint like pansies at the thought of running against her.
Why won’t Liz Warren allow people to run against her? Why are they forcing people out of the primary race? What are the other candidates being promised as part of the quid pro quo to quit the race? It is so early in the campaign season and yet able bodied Democrats are dropping like flies in the challenge to Lizzie Warren.
There are 3 candidates left to oppose Lizzie Warren – when will they drop out of the race?
