Will Markey Walk to the U.S. Senate Unchallenged?

"The path to the U.S. Senate doesn't get much easier than the one Rep. Edward J. Markey is on," Roll Call reports. "But that smooth path could signal significant potholes ahead."

Markey was "first elected to Congress more than 30 years ago by winning a multi-candidate primary with just 22% of the vote, and ever since, he's faced scant opposition in his re-election bids... Markey is untested as a candidate. No one has had a reason to dig deep into his record, so it's unclear what his opposition research file will contain. What's more, the congressman's campaign isn't close to midseason form: Two months into his Senate run, his campaign website consists of nothing more than a splash page."
