House of Kennedy golden (actually, red-headed) boy Joseph P. the Third is reportedly considering a run for the open Fourth Congressional District seat in Massachusetts, but the reports in the local dailies vary considerably in how they present his explorations.
From Saturday’s Boston Globe:
MEDFORD — Joseph P. Kennedy III, the latest generation of the political dynasty to explore a run for public office, remained tight-lipped about a campaign for Congress as he emerged from his final day as a prosecutor in the Middlesex district attorney’s office yesterday.
“I’m going to take some time to get across the district, talk to some people, listen to their concerns, and see if I can do what it takes to put together a candidacy for what I expect to be a competitive primary and, hopefully, a general election,’’ he said.
From Saturday’s Boston Herald (under its “DUDE! The Kennedy Watch” banner):
Joe K3 ‘excited’ to get his feet wet in politics
He’s still living with his mother in Cambridge, but 31-year-old Joseph P. Kennedy III said he’ll move soon into the 4th Congressional District and begin charting a possible run for Barney Frank’s open seat.
“I’m excited for what’s next,” Kennedy said yesterday. “To be able to get out and explore a potential candidacy . . . I’m going to take some time to get across the district and try to talk to people and listen to their concerns and see if I can do what it takes to put together a candidacy in what I expect to be a very competitive primary, then hopefully a general election.”
Another smooth-talkin’ Kennedy, eh?
Regardless, gotta love a two-daily town.
