PITTSFIELD — Newton Mayor Setti Warren extended his U.S. Senate campaign trail through the Berkshires on Thursday.
Warren, 40, announced earlier this week that he will seek the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown in the 2012 election.
On Thursday, he spent part of the morning at Cranwell Resort in Lenox, participating in the Massachusetts Municipal Association’s annual spring conference for the Massachusetts Mayors Association. Later in the morning, he visited Solider On in Pittsfield to tour its new 39-unit residential housing project and to meet with veterans there.
