WBUR - Democratic Senate Candidate Lynch Has Beaten The Odds Before

On Jan. 31, Congressman Stephen Lynch, of South Boston, launched his campaign for the U.S. Senate at the union hall for the Iron Workers Local 7 in South Boston.

“We are just a very short distance from the Old Colony housing projects, where my mom and dad and my five sisters and I lived in a small three-bedroom apartment — one bathroom, five sisters,” Lynch told the audience. “Spent most of my time waiting to use the bathroom. We lived there for 15 years and that’s really the beginning of my story.”

Lynch said growing up all he ever wanted to be was an iron worker like his father. Now, Lynch wants to become the next U.S. senator from Massachusetts.
