    One of the reasons Markey announced so early (as soon as Susan Rice withdrew from consideration) was that the party wanted their candidate out front early, and they put tremendous pressure on other challengers not to get in the race.  Lynch will holdout for the best deal he can get, and he's got a lot of union support, but he also knows we will never elect an anti-choice Senator.  A deal will be made to avoid a primary fight, and Markey will be the candidate.
