Ted Kennedy Jr. (D), a son of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D), will not run for Sen. John Kerry’s (D-Mass.) seat if Kerry is confirmed as the next secretary of State, according to a statement he released Monday.(from thehill.com)
Kennedy Jr. said that although he's "extremely grateful for all of the offers of support," he doesn't want to uproot his family from their current home in Connecticut, and doesn’t feel good about moving to Massachusetts to run for a seat outside of his current home state. Kennedy said he has a "strong desire" to some day seek office "at another point in my future," most likely in Connecticut.
