A person familiar with Congressman Stephen Lynch’s plans has informed BMG that Lynch will enter the race for John Kerry’s very-soon-to-be-vacant Senate seat. Lynch plans to make a formal announcement on Thursday afternoon at the Iron Workers’ Hall in Boston.
So we do indeed have ourselves a primary! Start your engines, folks.
Also worth noting: Lynch indicated some time ago (before Markey’s announcement to that effect) that he would abide by a People’s Pledge, should he enter the race. So the two leading Democrats are on board with that – excellent news.
