Boston.com is reporting an early salvo has been fired in what could be the Senate special election showdown.
In a radio interview Wednesday morning, U.S. Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) jabbed at Democratic Congressman Edward Markey about his residency in Malden, according to a Boston.com report. Brown questioned if Markey still lives in Massachusetts anymore and also told WTKK-FM he often sees members of the Bay State congressional delegation on planes trips home but said "I have never seen Ed on the airplane—ever," according to the report. This salvo from Brown could be a preview of a possible showdown with Markey over the Senate seat expected to be vacated by John Kerry if he is confirmed as the next U.S. Secretary of State. Boston.com reports Brown has "hinted" he could run for the seat while Markey said he would run if Kerry's confirmation is …

The Massachusetts senator is the president's pick to replace Hillary Clinton as the country's top diplomat.
John Kerry is President Obama's pick to become the next Secretary of State, and replace Hillary Clinton as the nation's top diplomat. Many expected Kerry, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, to be the president's pick after U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice took her name out of the running last week. Rice had been under scrutiny by Republicans in Congress for statements she made in the aftermath of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The scramble to replace Kerry is already on; a poll done for WBUR showed yesterday that Republican Scott Brown would lead if the special election to replace Kerry were held today.

The second debate between U.S. Senate incumbent Scott Brown and Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren is slated for tonight, Oct. 1, and the meetup promises to be a showdown. A Week of Back and Forth Since the first debate between the two candidates a week ago, Brown's campaign has been pressing Warren on her claim to Native American ancestry. “Professor Warren claimed she was a Native American, a person of color — and as you can see, she is not,” Brown said at the debate, inferring Warren got special treatment from her employers because of her heritage. ”I didn’t get an advantage because of my background,” Warren said.
