Markey or Lynch: Who Would You Vote for Today?

Congressmen Ed Markey (left) and Stephen Lynch (right), the two Democratic candidates so far for the Senate seat vacated by new Secretary of State John Kerry, will face off in a primary on April 30.

We have a race.

On Thursday, U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch became the second candidate to officially enter the race to fill the Senate seat vacated by new Secretary of State John Kerry, following his fellow Democratic Congressman Ed Markey.

Lynch and Markey will now face off in a primary set for April 30 for the right to represent the Democratic Party in the special election on June 25 against a still unknown Republican opponent, as no GOP candidate has officially entered the race yet. Former U.S. Senator Scott Brown fired an early salvo against Markey, but said on Friday that he would not run for Senate.

There are differences between Lynch and Markey, despite being members of the same party. Lynch voted against Obamacare, officially called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, while Markey voted for the bill.

Lynch also has an anti-abortion stance, although it’s not absolute—Planned Parenthood currently gives him a score of 83 percent to Markey’s 100 percent. The National Right to Life Committee, meanwhile, gave Lynch a score of 10 percent during the last Congressional session, while Markey received a zero. read more
