Meehan Will Not Run for Senate

Confirming an earlier report, former Rep. Marty Meehan (D-MA) told WBZ-TV that he will not run in the race to succeed Sen. Ted Kennedy in the U.S. Senate.

Meehan, who is currently the chancellor of UMass-Lowell, was widely considered one of the strongest candidates due to a $5 million war chest he still maintains.

Meanwhile, the AP reports Rep. Michael Capuano (D-MA) will draw nomination papers later today and make a formal announcement about his intentions next week.
