Scott Brown Questions Residency of Possible Kerry Replacement

Wonders if Rep. Edward Markey actually lives in Mass.


Senator Scott Brown today took on a possible opponent in a special election to succeed his colleague John F. Kerry, questioning whether US Representative Edward J. Markey is actually a resident of Massachusetts.

Brown has hinted he would compete in the special election but not made a formal commitment to a race, while Markey has said he will run if Kerry is confirmed as President Obama's second-term secretary of state.

"I'll tell you what; They're making it awfully tempting. You got Ed Markey: Does he even live here any more?" Brown said with a laugh as he called into the "Jim & Margery Show" on WTKK-FM.
