Race to Oust Warren Pits GOP Conservatives Against Moderates

BOSTON (AP) — The Republican campaign to oust Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren in next year’s election is starting to shape up and it’s pitting the conservative wing of the GOP against its more moderate middle.

The latest candidate to jump into the running is Winchester business executive John Kingston. Another moderate Republican candidate is Groton resident Beth Lindstrom, a former aide to Mitt Romney when he was governor.

On the more conservative and libertarian side is state Rep. Geoff Diehl, of Whitman, and Cambridge technology entrepreneur Shiva Ayyadurai.

A fifth Republican, Allen Waters, of Mashpee, is also running.

Warren has responded by ramping up her campaign activity, attending 13 town hall meetings across the state this year.

Gov. Charlie Baker, the state’s top Republican, hasn’t backed any of the candidates yet.
