Dr. Keith Ablow, the psychiatrist and author, said on Thursday that he may run for the U.S. Senate race if John Kerry is confirmed as Secretary of State.

“The dysfunction in Washington and the tragedy in Newtown, Conn., are both signs this country needs help, and, if neither William Weld nor Scott Brown is the candidate to bring that help from Massachusetts to Washington, I will take those who have asked me to run much more seriously,” Ablow said in a statement published by the Boston Herald.

“It is time, on so many levels, for real leadership based on the truth,” he added.

Ablow, 51, a Fox News commentator, has long supported GOP causes. He did not say in the statement whether he would seek the Senate seat as a Republican.

Kerry has been nominated by President Barack Obama to succeed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. He is expected to be easily confirmed by the Senate.

A special election to fill the seat is expected to be held in the summer. Brown, who lost his re-election bid in November, and Weld, a former two-term governor, are considered the most likely Republican candidates.

A graduate of Brown University and the John Hopkins School of Medicine, Ablow also is an assistant clinical professor at Tufts University School of Medicine.
