Kennedy wins in the 4th, returning the family to power
After a brief break from the stage, Camelot is back for another act. Democrat Joseph P. Kennedy III won a decisive victory Tuesday over Republican Sean Bielat, in the race to fill an open Congressional seat. Kennedy’s win restores his family’s long connection to the nation’s capital, which dates to 1947, when John F. Kennedy became a Massachusetts congressman. For the next 64 years, at least one member of the Kennedy family served in the House, Senate or White House.
