Joseph Kennedy launches new PAC

WASHINGTON — Representative Joseph Kennedy III, a freshman Democrat from Massachusetts, has launched a leadership political action committee called “4MAPAC,” a signal of his intention to use the Kennedy name to build a political base through fund-raising.

Kennedy registered the PAC with the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday. A Kennedy aide said the PAC will allow Kennedy to raise greater amounts of money and contribute to the races of fellow members and others moving forward, particularly critical as Democrats strategize to win back the House in 2014.
