Ted Kennedy Jr. considers Senate run

NORWICH, Conn. (AP) — Former US Representative Patrick Kennedy says his Connecticut-based brother, Ted Kennedy Jr., is considering running for the Massachusetts Senate seat that will become vacant if US Sen. John Kerry is confirmed as the nation’s next Secretary of State.

Patrick Kennedy told The Associated Press on Saturday that his 51-year-old brother Ted has been receiving calls from their late father’s friends, including former Connecticut Governor Lowell Weicker Jr., urging him to consider running in the anticipated special election.
