Rep. Capuano Says he Would Weigh Mass. Senate Run
But Capuano, a Somerville Democrat who easily won re-election to an eighth term in the House Nov. 6, told reporters he was not losing any sleep over the question and would make a decision in consultation with his family when — and if — the time came.
There’s been speculation that Kerry might be considered for Secretary of State or Secretary of Defense in President Barack Obama’s second term.
Capuano was among those who sought the Senate seat left vacant by the death of Sen. Edward Kennedy in 2009. He was defeated in a special Democratic primary by Martha Coakley, who went on to lose the election to Republican Scott Brown.
