Dover man drops out of US Senate race

Continue reading below

Another Democrat is dropping out of the race for the US Senate, leaving Elizabeth Warren with an even clearer path to her party’s nomination. James King, a lawyer who lives in Dover, told The Republican newspaper of Springfield Wednesday that he is dropping out and will support Warren. King’s campaign was unable to gain much traction as Warren, a Harvard Law School professor, emerged as the likely Democrat to face Senator Scott Brown, a Republican, in November. A spokesman for King did not immediately return a message. Marissa DeFranco, an immigration lawyer from Middleton, remains in the race, but needs at least 15 percent support at the Democratic State Convention in June to qualify for the September primary ballot.
