From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The United States Senate election (Class I) in Massachusetts will take place on November 6, 2012. Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy was re-elected with 69% of the vote in 2006. In May 2008, Kennedy was diagnosed with a malignant glioma, a form of brain cancer. This led to widespread speculation that he would retire before the 2012 election.[1] Kennedy died in August 2009. Paul Kirk was appointed to replace him until a special election could be held. On January 19, 2010, that election was held, and Republican State Senator Scott Brown defeated Democratic Attorney General Martha Coakley. Brown will serve the remainder of Kennedy's term, and is the presumptive Republican nominee for the 2012 Senate election.
