Joseph Kennedy III is formally jumping into the race for the Massachusetts congressional seat now held by retiring U.S. Rep. Barney Frank…Kennedy is the son of former U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy II and a grandson of the late Robert F. Kennedy. The family has deep ties to the Boston suburb.
When was the last time you saw a “Nixon” of the Presidential Lineage running for office? Gary Johnson will hopefully be the Libertarian on the ballot for President, but he’s not related to Either of the Presidents named Johnson who were both Disgraced.
But here in Massachusetts the name “Kennedy” still holds some positive political weight. I couldn’t for the life of me tell you why.
Only in Massachusetts!
