Massachusetts Republican Sen. Scott Brown is again hinting that he might run for Sen. John Kerryâ€™s likely open Senate seat, suggesting Monday the Democratic field appears vulnerable.
Brown made his comments Wednesday, his final day in the Senate, in questioning the legal residency of Democratic establishment candidate Rep. Edward Markey, should Kerry become the next secretary of state.
â€œTheyâ€™re making it awfully tempting,â€ Brown said on a radio talk show, as reported by The Boston Globe. â€œYou got Ed Markey: Does he even live here anymore?â€
â€œYouâ€™ve got to check the travel records. Iâ€™ve come back and forth (from Washington to Boston) every weekend, almost, for three years, and I see, you know, most of the delegation, and I have never seen Ed on the airplane â€“ ever.â€
Markey and his wife, a doctor at the National Institutes of Health, own a home in suburban Washington, but he has long declared his childhood home as his residency. Markey bought the home after his father died in 2000 and continues to maintain it as his voting address, an aide said last week.
Markey staffer Giselle Barry responded to Brownâ€™s comments, telling the newspaper, â€œScott Brown has not yet announced that he is running for Senate, but he is already launching false, personal attacks from the sidelines. Ed Markey lives in Malden, (Mass.) and has lived there his entire life.â€
