Scott Brown Will Not Run for U.S. Senate

Who do you think should be the Republican candidate?


Scott Brown ended speculation Friday afternoon as to whether he would run for U.S. Senate, announcing that he is not entering the race for the seat left vacant by John Kerry’s confirmation to the post of Secretary of State. 

Two Democratic political opponents – Congressman Stephen Lynch (D-South Boston) and Congressman Edward Markey (D-Malden) – will face off in the April 30 primary with the special election set for June 25. There are currently no Republican candidates in the race.

Markey, who represents the 5th Congressional District, kicked off his campaign in December. Lynch launched his bid with a formal announcement Thursday afternoon. Lynch represents the 8th Congressional District.

With Brown out of the running, what Republican would you like to see run for the seat? Leave your thoughts in the comment field below.

Fantastic!! I didn't want to have to watch his BS for another six months. I hope he focuses on the Law and gives up politics. What a J***

Oddly enough, I am both surprised and Not surprised ... It would be fine should no republican run at all ... but if they must run someone ... perhaps Bill Weld

I agree with you Southender and it is good news for women as far as I am concerned.
