Menino says Warren ‘would have my back, and so I have hers’

BOSTON — Democratic Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren won the backing of Boston Mayor Thomas Menino on Friday as incumbent Republican US Sen. Scott Brown ramped up his criticism of Warren’s legal work in an asbestos case.

Menino, a Democrat, made the endorsement Friday afternoon at a Warren rally in Roslindale. Menino said he held off announcing his decision until now because he wanted to take time to get to know Warren and her positions better.
