MA Sen: Stephen Lynch Will Challenge Ed Markey in Democratic Primary

The governor officially setting the Massachusetts special Senate election for June 25th has spurred Rep. Stephen Lynch (D) to finally make a decision. Today Lynch announced that he will run in the special election to replace John Kerry, launching his campaign with a Youtube video asking for volunteers. The video highlights his working class background and the fact that he was one the few representatives to vote against the “Wall Street bailout.”

Rep. Ed Markey (D) announced his decision to run weeks ago so Lynch entering the race assures that there will be a heavily contested primary for the Democratic nomination. That primary will take place on April 30th. At this point we are still waiting to see if former Sen. Scott Brown (R) will enter the race.
