Medford, MA – Rep. Ed Markey (D-Malden) released the following statement after Scott Brown announced he will not run for the Massachusetts open Senate seat vacated by John Kerry.

“I respect Scott Brown’s decision and know that he did what he thought was best for him and his family.

“This race is about who will be the best voice for our families and our future here in Massachusetts. My record taking on the gun lobby, fighting against climate change, creating clean energy jobs, and standing up for middle class families is clear, and I want to bring this energy and passion to the U.S. Senate.”
