|Description||Former governor Paul Cellucci of Massachusetts said yesterday that he will resign from his position as US ambassador to Canada in January and return to his native state, sparking speculation among Republicans eager to find someone to run for the US Senate if John F. Kerry wins the White House. |
But a Cellucci spokeswoman at the US embassy in Canada and Cellucci's confidants in Massachusetts knocked down the notion that he was positioning himself to run for Kerry's seat, and Republicans said it was unseemly to consider that Kerry would beat President Bush this fall.
"He plans to go back home, to go back to Hudson," said Beth Poisson, the embassy's press attach.
