    (Published Wednesday, July 12, 2017)

    Republican state Rep. Geoff Diehl is gearing up to formally launch his challenge to Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren. 

    Diehl, who served as co-chair of President Donald Trump's campaign in Massachusetts, is scheduled to make the announcement Tuesday evening in the town of Whitman, Massachusetts, where he lives. 

    Diehl has said in a radio ad that he wants to "make Massachusetts great again." 

    Warren is running for a second six-year term and has frequently sparred with Trump both verbally and on social media. 

    Shiva Ayyadurai, a Cambridge technology entrepreneur, also is seeking the GOP nomination for the seat held by Warren. 

    Warren had more than $11 million in her campaign account as of the end of June, compared to nearly $260,000 in Deihl's account and nearly $28,000 in Ayyadurai's account.
