Massachusetts' two U.S. senators are defending their support of a key change to the Senate's filibuster rule.

Senate Democrats pushed through the change Thursday.

Instead of requiring a 60-vote majority to end debate and allow a yes-or-no vote on presidential nominees to federal courts or cabinet departments, a simple majority can now clear the way for a final vote.

Republicans cried foul, but the state's two Democratic senators say the change was needed given GOP obstructionism.

Democrat Edward Markey is pressing his Republican opponent in the state's special U.S. Senate election to sign a pledge to discourage outside groups from spending money on TV, radio and Internet campaign ads.

Markey sent a letter to Republican Gabriel Gomez Friday asking that he join him at the Omni Parker House in Boston today to sign the so-called "People's Pledge."

Scott Brown

BOSTON (AP) — Former Republican Sen. Scott Brown won't be running in a Massachusetts special election to fill Democrat John Kerry's seat.

A person familiar with the decision who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to discuss it says Brown will not run.

Brown was defeated in November by Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren. He had won the seat in a special election in 2010.

U.S. Reps. Edward Markey and Stephen Lynch are seeking the Democratic nomination for the seat being vacated by Kerry, who is leaving the Senate to become Secretary of State.

The mailing, which includes forms voters can use to request absentee ballots, calls Brown a "new independent voice" and says Warren is "hyper-partisan" and out of touch.
