Scott Brown Will Not Run for U.S. Senate

Who do you think should be the Republican candidate?

Scott Brown Will Not Run for U.S. Senate

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.
