State Rep. Dan Winslow (R-Norfolk) is forming an exploratory committee to decide whether to run for US Senate.
Winslow made the announcement Tuesday to look into running for the seat vacated by John Kerry's appointment as US Secretary of State.
“Today, I’m taking the necessary steps to form an exploratory committee to test the waters for the U.S. Senate," said Winslow. "We need to fix a broken Washington where progress is being hampered by partisan gridlock. If we continue to elect the same Washington politicians, we can not expect different results.
“The people of Massachusetts and all Americans deserve solutions from their elected officials. Washington needs to focus on problem solving and implement ideas that will create jobs and grow our economy."
