Massachusetts Democrats Pick State Attorney General as Candidate to Replace Kennedy

Martha M. Coakley was projected to win Tuesday’s primary election in the race for the late Senator Edward M. Kennedy’s storied seat, according to The Associated Press. She was projected to face State Senator Scott Brown, a Republican, on Jan. 19. Massachusetts has not sent a Republican to the Senate in 37 years, so Ms. Coakley has the stronger chance of laying claim to the seat.
