Lynch Will Run for Kerry's Seat

Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) will run in the special U.S. Senate election to fill the expected vacancy if Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) is confirmed next week to be Secretary of State, the Boston Globe reports.

Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) has already announced his own bid.

First Read: "If Kerry steps down from his Senate seat on Tuesday, the primary to replace him would have to take place between Sunday, May 12 and Monday, May 27. And the general would be between Sunday, June 23 and Monday, July 8. State law requires the general to take place 145 to 160 days after a vacancy is created. The primary is required to occur six weeks before that."
