Who Will Run for Kerry's Seat if He's Appointed Secretary of Defense?

Would it be Scott Brown? Congressmen Markey or Capuano? Tell us who you think should run.


The Washington Post is reporting that President Obama is considering appointing Massachusetts U.S. Sen. John Kerry as the Secretary of Defense. There was speculation Kerry would become the next Secretary of State. 

Either way Kerry's move to possibly become a member of Obama's cabinet will open up his current seat. Should he be appointed, a special election would be held to finish out Kerry's term, which expires in 2014.

Conversation from the breakfast table this morning to the morning commute has everyone talking - who will run for Kerry's U.S. Senate seat if he's appointed? Could it be Scott Brown? Or maybe Congressmen Ed Markey or Michael Capuano?

Only time will tell, but we know you're talking about it. So tell us, who do you think will run for Kerry's seat if he's appointed? Let us know in the comments section below.

Massholians, pay attention because this was already decided,- Kerry goes to DC, Warren becomes senior Senator, Cong. KENNEDY runs for her seat,- ehh voila!,- Sen. Kennedy,...let's hope he swims better than Ginbag Teddy

People, the machine is in power right now... it's going to be Vicky Kennedy, no matter what we all really want.

We never mattered, remember the "vote" to reduce the state income tax. We don't have a prayer of being heard, afterall, they know what's best for us. So sit down and shut up!

Annie Dukaine should run, after all, look at all of her experience at misrepresentation, isn't that what the Senate is all about. How about her drug dealing assistant from Hampton, NH. She's another Gem of Duval Patrick, Another shinning Star, the commonwealth should be proud of :-)
