Quick special election Senate seat roundup

In Massachusetts, the special election Senate race to fill the seat of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy is underway and it looks like it may actually turn into a free-for-all.

So far, Attorney General Martha Coakley and U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch have pulled papers.
Others who are getting a bit more seriously include Rep. Ed Markey, Rep. John Tierney, Rep. Mike Capuano, and attorney Ed O'Reilly, who garnered 31 percent in a primary against Sen. John Kerry last year.

On the GOP side, former Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey and state Sen. Scott Brown are nosing around.
Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is considering a run as an independent.
No word yet on what Joe Kennedy is deciding to do.
