Massachusetts Congressman Edward Markey announced that he will run for U.S. Senate on Thursday, throwing his hat in the ring to replace senior Senator John Kerry if is confirmed as President Obama's new Secretary of State.

Markey, who has served represented the Commonwealth's 7th congressional district since 1976, is the longest serving member of the Bay State's Congressional delegation.
