Beth Lindstrom, a Massachusetts Republican who served in the administration of former Gov. Mitt Romney announced on Monday her candidacy for the Senate in a video she posted to YouTube.

Lindstrom is the fourth Republican so far who is challenging Democratic US Sen. Elizabeth Warren, The Boston Globe reported.

Lindstrom used the announcement of her candidacy to criticize President Donald Trump for his comments following the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. Her statement is in line with the more the moderate positions of Massachusetts' Republicans.

"As an independent-minded Republican, I will oppose President Trump when he's wrong," Lindstrom said in a press release. "His response to what happened in Charlottesville should have encouraged the people of this country with a message of zero tolerance for ethnic or racial prejudice. This is not an occasion for equivocation or evasion. Let me be clear: the hatred spewed by white supremacists and neo-Nazis is ugly and bigoted."

Lindstrom previously served as the director of consumer affairs under Romney and later ran the Massachusetts state lottery, according to The Washington Free Beacon.

Warren is currently running unopposed in the Democratic primary and has been gearing up for her 2018 re-election by raising more than $8 million since January to boost her campaign account to $11 million.
