Republican Dan Winslow for Senate Announcement Imminent

All signs point to Dan Winslow announcing that he will be running for the Vacant Senate Seat in Massachusetts. Note that Swift Current Strategies is the contact point on this announcement. They were a driving force behind the Scott Brown 2010 campaign upset as web and political strategists. This could also be seen as Kirsten Hughes first move as head of Mass GOP party after a close chair race with grassroots backed Conservative/Liberty candidate Rick Green.
