Quincy Republican Ian Cain joins the Senate fight to impeach Warren

Another Republican is challenging Senator Elizabeth Warren in her bid for re-election. Ian Cain, a Quincy city councilman and co-founder of a blockchain technology incubator company, announced his candidacy in a video on social media on Tuesday.

“I am running to usher in the next generation of leadership, where leaders focus on embracing the innovation economy and the new digital world,” Cain said in his campaign video.

After detailing his personal and professional background, Cain went on the attack, saying the incumbent Democrat is “bored in partisan politics” and “unable to deliver real results.”

Cain is Quincy’s first black and openly gay city council member. His campaign priorities include immigration enforcement, infrastructure improvements and strengthening the economy.

Cain joins Republican and crypto attorney John Deaton in challenging the two-term senator. Deaton has attracted some donations from supporters and investors in the cryptocurrency industry, as Politico reported. Both Cain and Deaton face a long-running campaign against Warren, who is favored in heavily Democratic Massachusetts.
