I had heard rumors this might happen. I received the email below from Allen Waters announcing he is contesting Senator Warren’s renomination. I think Donald Trump does a better job reading the political mood than this guy does. For a statewide race he wants to run to Warren’s right! I believe he initially considered seeking the GOP nomination and just recently changed his registration. I know the GOP wants to bloody Warren in anticipation of a 2020 presidential candidacy so part of me wonders if Waters is a stalking horse. I suggest we watch closely where his money comes from. My gut bet is that he doesn’t get 15% at next year’s convention. At least Ed O’Reilly could claim faithfulness to the platform when he challenged Kerry! In case anyone is wondering he did not address today’s convention and I did not see a table for him.
This is Allen Waters from Mashpee, the land of the Wampanoag. I am a 61 year old, black conservative “Blue Dog” Democrat running for U.S. Senate against Elizabeth Warren. I am the right candidate to attract moderates and conservatives, inside and outside the Party, especially those Mass Democrats who unenrolled because they were dissatisfied with the changes over the years after President Kennedy.
I want you to support my grassroots campaign because I believe we should grow the economy, protect our culture and, above all, protect the American people. I also believe that free enterprise is the cure for the failure on poverty in America.A party official recently told me that I should not challenge the incumbent. That’s not how our Democracy is supposed to work. America does not just belong to the wealthy and academic elites, the media or the political establishments. America also belongs to the people, including the common men and women, like myself, who want peace and prosperity for themselves and their families, and to be able to retire in dignity.The more you get to know me, the more you will get to like me. In the weeks ahead, I hope you learn more about my campaign, and invite me to speak with your groups.In God’s hands,Allen
