The state legislature changed the law accordingly, and today Democratic Governor Deval Patrick appointed Paul Kirk, a long time Kennedy friend and former chair of the Democratic National Committee. Massachusetts' primary election will be held in December, the general in January. Josh Kraushaar reports for Politico.com.
