Congressman Stephen Lynch is expected to announce his intent to seek the Democratic Party’s nomination for the Senate seat vacated by John Kerry. He is opposed by longtime Congressman Ed Markey.
Lynch was elected to Congress in October 2001 in a special election following the death of Joe Moakley who represented the district for nearly 30 years.
While Markey has more money and organization I think Lynch would be a far tougher opponent for Scott Brown should Brown decide to make another bid for the Senate. It would be a battle of two blue collar guys. Before practicing law and entering politics, Lynch was an ironworker. While his politics are virtually identical to Kerry’s, a Senator from Southie would be a contrast to a bilionaire from Beacon Hill.
The Democratic (and Republican) primaries have been set for April 30th while the special election has been scheduled for June 25th.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
