Statement From Dr. Keith Ablow Regarding His Interest in the Massachusetts Senate Seat

Feb 04, 2013, 10:05 ET from Dr. Keith Ablow

BOSTON, Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Keith Ablow, who has publicly announced his interest in the Senate seat being vacated by John Kerry (D-MA) made his intentions plainer today. He will run if the party unifies around him, without a primary.

"We face an unprecedented assault on the Constitution and our individual liberties. If the Republican Party in Massachusetts and the Republican National Committee ask me to run at this time, and offer their support in that effort, I will run. If they support another candidate, I will work hard to elect that candidate. If that candidate should lose, I will, in all likelihood, again offer to be a candidate for Senate from Massachusetts in 2014, under the same conditions. The Party can't afford to spend precious resources on a divisive primary. If all the leaders of the Party united around me - to preclude a primary, I would run. Such unity looks improbable at this time."
