A prominent Massachusetts attorney has announced her intention to primary longtime Sen. Ed Markey (D., Mass.), who has represented the state in Congress since 1976 when he was first elected to the state’s 7th Congressional District.
Shannon Liss-Riordan, a graduate of Harvard Law School, announced her campaign to unseat Markey on Monday. She says the "cycle of Washington politics" needs to be broken and a "fresh voice" is needed to do it.
Her launch video does not mention Markey explicitly but it is filled with references that she will cast herself as an outsider compared to the senator's 40-year political career.
"This country is stuck because of the cycle of Washington politics," Liss-Riordan says near the end of the video. "Washington needs a fresh voice willing to break that cycle."
Rounding out her announcement, Liss Riordan declares that Massachusetts voters have a choice in the Senate election to "maintain the status quo in Washington, or vote for me and break it."
