JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick has tapped his close confidant William “Mo” Cowan to occupy the Senate seat left open by Secretary of State John Kerry’s cabinet appointment. Cowan, a North Carolina native who became a prominent lawyer in Boston, will join the recently appointed Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) as one of two African Americans in the Senate. Cowan will hold the seat on an interim basis until a special election can be held to fill it in June.
