Senator Elizabeth Warren’s challenger John Deaton has officially confirmed his candidacy in the U.S. Senate race. However, the XRP advocate didn’t offer a direct mention crypto in the donation campaign initiated by him. However, he has confirmed the involvement of crypto in his campaign.

John Deaton To Embrace Crypto Donations

In a post on X by Fox Journalist Eleanor Terrett, it was revealed that John Deaton is set to break records by accepting campaign donations in cryptocurrency. Despite not fitting the stereotype of a “crypto bro,” Deaton will soon enable supporters to donate directly from their Coinbase accounts, according to the confirmation made to Terrett.

This move marks a notable step in the integration of digital assets into mainstream political financing, potentially signaling a broader acceptance of crypto. On Wednesday, February 20, Deaton officially entered the race for a United States Senate seat in Massachusetts. However, he chose not to directly address crypto as a campaign focal point.

In a video posted on his X account, Deaton outlined his campaign’s primary objective as “taking on the Washington elites,” while criticizing Senator Elizabeth Warren for not doing anything significant for Massachusetts. Notably, the video featured a snapshot of a headline from Rhode Island Lawyers Weekly highlighting Deaton’s advocacy for crypto in opposition to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), with Deaton wearing a T-shirt featuring Ripple’s XRP.

However, the launch video predominantly centered on domestic concerns such as inflation and border security. “I am running for U.S. Senate to continue my life’s mission to shake things up for the people who need it most,” expressed Deaton, emphasizing his motivation for seeking public office.

Elizabeth Warren Rolls Out Another Donation Plea

After the XRP attorney John Deaton confirmed his Senate candidacy, Elizabeth Warren rallied her donation campaign. She responded to Deaton’s campaign announcement, characterizing him as a well-funded Republican brought in from Rhode Island by the GOP and special interest groups. Warren framed the race as a battle against national Republicans aiming to advance Trump’s agenda.

Moreover, Warren emphasized the need to counter their efforts in taxation, banking regulation, and government representation for working people. Stressing the importance of grassroots support, Warren urged donations to her re-election campaign. Recognizing Deaton as a strong competitor, she noted, “It’s going to take a strong grassroots movement to compete and win.” Furthermore, the urged supporters to contribute $28 or any amount to boost her re-election campaign.
