(NECN: Jim Braude) - There's no one way to kick off a campaign for U.S. Senate, but chances are, you've never seen a bumper sticker with the line "I won't fit in,"
That’s why Steve Lynch surprised a few people with this announcement last week.

Joining host Jim Braude on “Broadside” Monday night was Mass. Rep. Stephen F. Lynch, a Democrat from South Boston. He’s a candidate for the U.S. Senate seat held up until last week by John Kerry, now Secretary of State.

Lynch claims he won't "fit in" in the Senate.

"It's a representative democracy and I think what the Senate could use -- it's such an elite club -- is someone to bring the concerns of the average American people to the US Senate so they're not so insulated," Lynch said.

Watch the attached video for the complete discussion.
