Scott Brown Will Not Run for U.S. Senate

Who do you think should be the Republican candidate?


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.

You know Michael, I may ultimately be wrong, and that's fine too. But I have been on patch for quite a while now, and I have yet to see middle ground reached on any thread, Usually the insults alone make it impossible to comment with reason and knowledge, You end up having to defend whatever point of view you have, or you get sucked into sniping. Aron dismisses viewpoints too easily, I think we all do at times, But this point of view that If it doesn't come from an institute or article or commentator I like and agree with so therefore your point is not valid is becoming the predominate factor here. Aron seems to express that the most. He is a smart guy and has great knowledge on many different subjects, But he has to accept other points of view as valid arguments as well. We all do. if not, the middle ground is a thing of the past. Time for bed, Talk tomorrow.....

Aron: Re "Obama's stash" -- that is a quote from an Obama supporter, the video shown numerous times on news reports and elsewhere. Gail is clearly paying more attention to what is going on than you are.

Aron? Wondering about your response to my question about ever finding middle ground. (Note several frames up.). Interested in your reasoned reply.
