Warren drops off signatures for US Senate race
BOSTON—Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren has submitted more than 28,378 signatures to secure a spot on the fall ballot in Massachusetts.
Warren carried a large plastic box containing the nomination papers to the secretary of state's office in Boston on Friday morning. She said she was excited to reach the milestone in her campaign and called it a reminder of how democracy works.
Candidates need 10,000 certified signatures to qualify for the ballot.
Republican U.S. Senator Scott Brown personally delivered 13,291 signatures to the secretary of state's office earlier in the week.
Marisa DeFranco, an immigration attorney from Middleton, is also seeking the Democratic nomination.
The filing deadline is May 8.
