Ex-GOP candidate seeks independent run in Mass.
BOSTON (AP) -- A perennial Republican candidate in Massachusetts says he has taken out nomination papers to run as an independent for the U.S. Senate in the June 25 special election.
Jack E. Robinson said in a statement on Monday that he switched his voter registration to independent last year.
As a Republican, Robinson ran unsuccessfully in the past for several political offices, including twice for the U.S. Senate.
He must gather at least 10,000 certified signatures by April 3 to get on the special election ballot.
