Skip to comments.Yet another Senate race on the horizon in Mass. (Kerry’s seat)
Posted on 12/22/2012 8:24:56 AM PST by Olog-hai
Massachusetts voters weary from one of the nations costliest and most divisive U.S. Senate races are all but certain to find themselves thrown back into another tumultuous election now that President Barack Obama has nominated Sen. John Kerry for secretary of state.
If confirmed by the Senate, as expected, Democrat Kerry would have to resign the seat hes held for nearly three decades, meaning a special election that will be the states third Senate contest since 2010.
Jockeying already is well under way. The big question is whether Republican Sen. Scott Brown will go for the seat after losing his last month to Democratic Elizabeth Warren.
He kept the door wide open to another run during a farewell address on the Senate floor, declaring that both victory and defeat are temporary things. Depending on what happens, and where we go, all of us, we may obviously meet again. Perhaps as soon as next year.

Brown is perfect for Mass. He’s pro gay marriage, pro abortion, pro gun control.
Yes I’d rather a democrat win than see a virus like Brown continue to infect the party. Make the democrats own it and if Brown wants to run as a democrat, more power to him.
Or will they have to go with some carpetbagging, dissipated, nth generation Kennedy?
Scott would do a lot better if he would just come out of the closet and register Democrat.
I heard Barney Frank is eyeing Kerry’s seat, and has been for years!
You know, I think that 1. Hillary could want that job, it would involve less travel. 2. Bill might want that job. 3. Chelsea is now of age and might want that job. 4. Michelle might want that job. 5. Ed from MSNBC might want that job. 6. Helen Thomas might want it too. 5. Oprah would be another.
This is the day after the Mayan apocolypse.
Obama could not have picked a worse nominee had he searched for ten years.
To pick a low-life traitor,coward, war criminal,Communist loving Piece of dung like John Kerry is a disgrace, and a slap in the face to every American ever to have served this country.
This man tried to make deal with the Viet Cong while we were fighting them. He and John McCain went to Viet nam to find MIA’s and POW’s and came home with a trade deal. How low is that? An even more disturbing thing is that he will be approved, and many Repubicans will vote to have him.
May they all be tossed out of office.
Note that Kerry is wearing a yellow Livestrong wristband. Recall, also, that, while he was preening around Paris for the finale of one year’s Tour de France, Kerry lauded now disgraced Lance Armstrong as someone who would make a good senator.
Hope Brown is left to try it on his own this time.
The article: “The big question is whether Republican Sen. Scott Brown will go for the seat after losing his last month to Democratic Elizabeth Warren.”
Scott “AWB” Brown can kiss my grits, as the lady used to say.
