Scott Brown Will Not Seek US Senate Seat

The Washington Post is reporting the former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown will not run in the special election to replace senior Senator John Kerry who was confirmed by the Senate earlier this week to be President Obama’s next Secretary of State.

With this proclamation, the Democratic party’s grips on the state of Massachusetts is likely to get tigheter with both longtime, Democratic Rep. Ed Markey and fellow Democratic Rep. Stephen Lynch both looking to be Kerry’s replacement.

The special primary will be held on April 30 followed by the special general election on June 25. The winner of the election will have to campaign (again) for reelection in 2014.
