Democratic primary approaching quickly to fill Kerry’s Senate seat

Massachusetts is entering the final stretch of the democratic primary for the special election to fill the U.S. Senate seat left empty by current Secretary of State John Kerry and all eyes are on Reps. Ed Markey and Stephen Lynch, its two democratic candidates.

The two will face off on April 30 and the winner will go up against one of three GOP candidates in a special election on June 25.

Host Carmen Russell-Sluchansky spoke with Frank Phillips, statehouse bureau chief for the Boston Globe, to discuss the path to filling Kerry’s seat.
