NBC News has posted the following:
BOSTON – NBC News has confirmed that Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick will name former Democratic National Committee chairman Paul G. Kirk Jr. as the interim successor to Sen. Edward M. Kennedy.
The appointment will let Kirk, who was close friends with the senator, serve in the post until voters pick a permanent replacement in a Jan. 19 special election.
Kirk was the Kennedy family’s choice.
