Mayor Setti Warren announced Thursday morning that he is dropping out of the U.S. Senate race.
Under rainy skies and aside a small crowd of local supporters, the mood and setting was decidedly different from Mayor Setti Warren's campaign launch at Post 440 less than five months ago. Warren, whose campaign has been overshadowed by financial difficulties and larger-than-life Democratic opponents, announced this morning he is dropping out of the race for U.S. Senate.

Sharon will be on the U.S. Senate campaign trail this summer. Newton Mayor Setti Warren, a Democrat, will meet and greet voters at 1 p.m. Aug. 14 at 107 Brook Road, Sharon, the home of the Agulnek family.
