Governor Patrick Appoints Mo Cowan to US Senate as Placeholder

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick has appointed longtime friend and former chief of staff William "Mo" Cowan to serve as a placeholder in the United States Senate as John Kerry takes over as Secretary of State and the independent minded voters of the Commonwealth have five months to decide on their next Senator. 

The Governor reportedly wanted someone who was out of the box and hadn't run for political office before, and he found that man in Mr. Cowan, who will not seek full election to the U.S. Senate after his interim term is up, and who left the Patrick administration wanting to pursue a private sector career. 

Mr. Cowan will join Tim Scott, who was also recently appointed to the U.S. Senate from South Carolina, as the only African-Americans in the prestigious legislative body and the first time two have served together in history.

What say you?
