Brown Questions Markey's Malden Residency

Boston.com is reporting an early salvo has been fired in what could be the Senate special election showdown.

In a radio interview Wednesday morning, U.S. Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) jabbed at Democratic Congressman Edward Markey about his residency in Malden, according to a Boston.com report.

Brown questioned if Markey still lives in Massachusetts anymore and also told WTKK-FM he often sees members of the Bay State congressional delegation on planes trips home but said, "I have never seen Ed on the airplane—ever," according to the report.

This salvo from Brown could be a preview of a possible showdown with Markey over the Senate seat expected to be vacated by John Kerry if he is confirmed as the next U.S. Secretary of State. Boston.com reports Brown has "hinted" he could run for the seat while Markey said he would run if Kerry's confirmation is successful.

As constituent, I've seen him many times in the district as well as at Fenway Park! I've been astounded by his knowledge of local events and issues and his genuine understanding of those local issues as well as national issues. He is always open to hearing from constituents and is is genuinely responsive. I can't imagine a better informed or better suited representative for his district or for Massachusetts, should it come to that!
