GLOBE REPORT: “Brown questions Markey’s residency”
BOSTON- It seems that Kingston isn’t the only political theatre where residency is called into question. That according to a Boston.com report quoting still-Senator Scott Brown questioning the residency of Representative Ed Markey (D) during a WTKK-FM radio interview.
On the Jim & Margery show, Senator Scott Brown (R) fielded the prospect of running in the upcoming special-election and took a swipe at his likely opponent.
“They’re making it awfully tempting. You got Ed Markey. Does he even live here anymore,” Brown said during the live interview.
Markey, who lives in Malden, also owns a house in Chevy Chase, Maryland. The Boston Globe reports that Congressman Markey has owned his Malden house since the passing of his father in 2000.
The comments give insight to the future plans of Senator Scott Brown, who has only weeks remaining in his U.S. Senate term. Senator Brown lost to political-newcomer Elizabeth Warren (D) on November 6th in a tightly contested race.
Markey recently announced that he would run for Senator John Kerry’s seat if Kerry was appointed the 68th Secretary of State. Over the weekend, Markey received backing from Ted Kennedy’s widow, Victoria Kennedy, and Kerry himself.
Today’s comments from Brown on WTKK-FM are the first time Senator Brown has commented publicly on the field of possible candidates to replace John Kerry.
