King leaves Se­nate race, backs chal­lenger War­ren

The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

BOS­TON | An­other Demo­crat is drop­ping out of the race for U.S. Se­nate in Mas­sachusetts, leav­ing El­iz­a­beth War­ren with an even clearer path to her party’s nom­i­na­tion.

James King, a lawyer who lives in Dover, told the Re­pub­li­can news­pa­per of Springfield on Wed­nes­day that he is end­ing his cam­paign and will sup­port Ms. War­ren.

Mr. King’s cam­paign was un­able to gain much trac­tion as Ms. War­ren, a Har­vard Law School pro­fes­sor and con­sumer ad­vo­cate, emerged as the likely Demo­crat to chal­lenge Re­pub­li­can Sen. Scott P. Brown in Novem­ber.

An ar­ti­cle in some of Tues­day’s edi­tions in­cor­rectly re­ported the final vote in Congress for the Af­ford­able Care Act. The health care leg­is­la­tion passed in 2010 with no Re­pub­li­can sup­port.

An ar­ti­cle in Wed­nes­day’s edi­tions mis­stated a pas­sage from a re­port by a Coun­cil on For­eign Re­la­tions task force on the U.S. ed­u­ca­tional sys­tem and na­tional se­cu­rity. The quote should have read: “Though ed­u­ca­tional at­tain­ment has not changed sig­nif­i­cantly, de­mands on the work­force have in­creased, mak­ing suc­cess less at­tain­able for many Amer­i­cans.”
