US Representative Niki Tsongas, currently the only woman in the Massachusetts congressional delegation, today endorsed Elizabeth Warren in her run for next year’s Democratic Senate nomination.

“It is not inappropriate that we are here today, with Elizabeth Warren, who again has a chance to make history as the first woman to represent Massachusetts in the US Senate,” Tsongas said as she stood in front of a canal and mill buildings that evoked her city’s rich history.

“In the Senate, Elizabeth will fight to level to playing field, so that you have a voice,” said Tsongas, only the fourth woman to represent the state in Congress.

The announcement occurred in Lowell, part of a hotly contested Merrimack Valley region and scene of a debate tomorrow evening between the six Democrats vying to challenge US Senator Scott Brown as the Republican seeks relection next year.
