Since John Kerry is confirmed as the Secretary of State, there will be a special election in June to determine who will replace his Senate seat. Scott Brown was mentioned as an early favorite for the Republican party but he declined to run despite the full faith and credit of the GOP. Former Massachusetts congressional candidate Richard Tisei declined to run, too. Now another Republican from Massachusetts has declined, as well. Former Massachusetts governor William Weld has decided not to run. So, who will run from the Republican party? It remains to be seen as pretty much every known Republican politician is declining to run left and right. Even Tagg Romney seems unlikely to run at this time. Does anyone want to run? At this point, I would conclude that it would take a small miracle for the open Senate seat to go into Republican hands.
