Week In Review: A Senate Race Begins
We dive into the top stories of a very politics-heavy news week — from John Kerry’s Massachusetts farewell, to Governor Deval Patrick’s announcement of an interim Senator, to Congressman Stephen Lynch’s entrance into the race for John Kerry’s seat in the U.S. Senate.

Politico “It’s a serious, early recruiting failure for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and it makes the already uphill climb to a majority that much steeper for the GOP. They need six seats, and many party strategists privately counted on Massachusetts as one of them.”
Harvard Crimson “More than half of all cases heard by Harvard College’s Administrative Board last fall resulted in a required to withdraw verdict, according to an email sent by Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Michael D. Smith to the Harvard community on Friday morning.”
