Markey throws hat into Senate race

MALDEN — Standing before supporters in a packed gymnasium, Representative Edward J. Markey formally launched his run for the US Senate, talking about his long-held environmental goals and gun control advocacy, but not about Scott Brown, the Republican former Senator who could have been Markey’s most formidable opponent.

Markey, a Democrat from Malden, announced his plans making no mention of Brown, who announced Friday he would not run in the special Senate race.
