Tuesday, January 29, 2013
A vote by the full Senate is expected later in the day.
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.
