A representative for Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) took out nomination papers today to run for the Senate seat vacated by Ted Kennedy.
Lynch’s spokeswoman wasn’t immediately available for comment.
If Lynch runs, he’ll be campaigning against Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley, who announced yesterday she’s running for Kennedy’s seat. The primary is scheduled for Dec. 8, and the election for Jan. 19.
The secretary of state’s office told the Globe several other lesser-known people have taken out papers.
