Mayor Warren apparently picked up a couple of endorsements today, before officially announcing his candidacy.

Setti’s coup

Newton Mayor Setti Warren has landed major endorsements from three former state Democratic Party leaders, suddenly making his yet-to-be-announced gubernatorial candidacy a very legitimate, and non-laughable, matter. According to Kevin Franck, Warren’s recently hired communications advisor, Steve Grossman, Phil Johnston and John Walsh will be sending out a letter today to Dems announcing their support for Warren.

“As former chairs of the Massachusetts Democratic Party, we have decided to support Newton Mayor Setti Warren as he looks at challenging Charlie Baker,” the trio write in their letter inviting people to meet with Warren next month. “Setti has the passion, commitment to progressive values, and track record of leadership that we need more than ever.”
