NEW: Kerry Confirmed By Senate As Secretary of State

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

 

The Senate confirmed Senator John Kerry's appointment to secretary of state for President Obama's second-term cabinet Tuesday afternoon.

The vote came after the outgoing Bay State Senator breezed through a confirmation hearing last week and approval vote this morning with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee he formerly chaired.

Kerry planned to submit his resignation from the Senate on Tuesday, effective Friday, and Governor Deval Patrick is poised to name an interim replacement on Wednesday.

Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin's office said on Monday that the special election to replace Kerry would be scheduled for June 25th, and that nomination papers would be issued once the Governor makes a formal announcement calling for the contest.

Democratic Congressman Edward Markey is the only candidate from either party to formally announce his intentions to run in the special election for Kerry's seat.
