DescriptionThe short story is this: U.S. Rep. Barney Frank [related, bio] of Newton holds an early and significant lead. Middlesex County District Attorney Martha Coakley has the potential to emerge as a strong candidate. And if the field remains crowded, U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch of Boston, the sole pro-life candidate, could end up the winner, capturing a plurality - but not a majority - of the votes.

     The timing of the new election is uncertain - it has to be held within 160 days after Kerry resigns his seat. The field may be crowded. Because it's a special election, it will be a free shot for incumbent pols, who won't have to give up their current jobs in order to seek a new one.
