Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., told the Boston Globe Monday that he would take a serious look at a Senate special election should John Kerry be nominated secretary of state. But the Globe is reporting today that the longtime congressman already has a poll in the field testing him in potential primary matchups as well as a matchup against GOP Sen. Scott Brown.
The poll looks at Markey's favorability against other possible Democratic candidates for the seat: Reps. Stephen Lynch and Michael Capuano, former Rep. and UMass Lowell chancellor Marty Meehan, and Vicki Kennedy, the widow of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy.
