Longtime Republican operative Beth Lindstrom will formally launch her campaign for US Senate on Saturday, taking square aim at Democratic US Senator Elizabeth Warren, whom she hopes to topple next year.
Declaring herself “not a professional politician,” Lindstrom will seek to portray Warren as consumed by a national political agenda, according to advance excerpts of her announcement speech, in which she calls next year’s election “just a small detail on the ambitious calendar of Elizabeth Warren.”
“Do we really want a senator who’s going to be spending more time in the Ohio Valley than in the Merrimack Valley?” Lindstrom will say, according to the excerpts.
Lindstrom, who is scheduled to raise money in Washington later this month, is one in a crowd of Republicans jockeying to challenge Warren. Shiva Ayyadurai, state Representative Geoff Diehl, and John Kingston are also seeking the nomination. Kingston is scheduled to formalize his campaign later this month.
The first female executive director of the state Republican Party, Lindstrom managed Scott Brown’s victorious Senate campaign and appeared on many voters’ TV screens in 2014, when she appeared in ads for a super PAC backing Republican Charlie Baker. The Groton resident was executive director of the state Lottery in the 1990s and, later, chief of consumer affairs and business regulation during the Romney administration.
Due to speak at a noon appearance at District Hall in Boston’s Seaport, Lindstrom will target Warren’s health care stance, proposing cutting the corporate tax rate and expanding the child tax credit, and oppose so-called sanctuary cities — intended to be safe havens for illegal immigrants.
Warren’s campaign released campaign finance figures showing her with $12.84 million on hand, after a nearly $3 million third quarter.
