Rep. Lynch: I’m Still Undecided about Senate Run


By STEVE LeBLANC, Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — Congressman Stephen Lynch says he hasn’t made a final decision whether to run for John Kerry’s U.S. Senate seat if Kerry is confirmed as secretary of state.

Lynch told the Boston Herald Friday he’s conducting a poll and wouldn’t rule out the possibility of making an announcement next week.

Earlier Friday a person with knowledge of the Boston Democrat’s plans told The Associated Press that Lynch plans to announce his candidacy next week. The person requested anonymity to avoid pre-empting the official announcement.

Lynch has not returned calls to his office and his South Boston home.

Congressman Edward Markey, a fellow Democrat, has already announced he will seek the seat.

Former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown is considering running on the Republican side.
