State Rep. Daniel Winslow (R-Norfolk) announced today that he will be the running for the United States Senate.
Winslow represents Walpole's fifth precinct.
When former United States Senator Scott Brown announced last week that he wasn't running for office, that left the Republican field wide-open for the April 30 primary and the June 30 general election.
Before being elected state representative, Winslow was the chief legal counsel for former Massachusetts Governor Milt Romney. He is also a former presiding judge at Wrentham District Court and was involved in Norfolk government for 15 years, including being town moderator.
