BOSTON—The race among Massachusetts Democrats seeking to unseat Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown has narrowed again, with candidate Robert Massie announcing he's dropping out of the contest.
Massie said in a statement Friday "the momentum of the race has shifted so profoundly" that he could no longer see a path to victory.
Massie's decision comes a week after Newton Mayor Setti Warren also dropped out, citing trouble raising money and the entrance of Harvard professor and consumer activist Elizabeth Warren into the race.
Massie didn't mention Elizabeth Warren by name in his statement. She has emerged as a front-runner in recent polls.
The remaining Democrats include City Year youth program co-founder Alan Khazei (KAY'-zee); immigration attorney Marisa DeFranco; state Rep. Tom Conroy and Newton resident Herb Robinson.
