Setti Warren is no stranger to overcoming long odds. In 2010, he became the first-ever popularly elected African-American Mayor in Massachusetts, and in 2013 he won his re-election bid to remain as Mayor of Newton, Mass. And now, he’s running for Governor (against the most popular incumbent governor in the country).

Prior to entering political office, Warren served in the Clinton Administration in a number of offices, as well as the New England Regional FEMA Director, and then in higher education at Boston College.

A Navy veteran, husband, father, and Mayor, Setti Warren announced his candidacy to challenge Republican Governor Charlie Baker in May of 2017. Baker has been recently distancing himself from Donald Trump’s divisive rhetoric, perhaps seeing the writing on the wall of a tougher-than-normal re-election campaign.

Warren’s platform is one of a bold progressive. He is pro-single payer healthcare, for free public college (which includes fees, tuition, and other expenses), he’s in favor of a new “millionaire’s tax”, and he wants to create a high-speed rail project across Massachusetts.
