The Boston Globe has Vicki Kennedy reiterating her lack of interest in running for the Senate:
“There’s no elective office for me,’’ Kennedy said.
Although she has said all along she isn’t interested in seeking the seat her late husband long held, the speculation and the cajoling have continued. Now, with Democrats starting to look in earnest for a compelling candidate to challenge Republican US Senator Scott Brown, Kennedy says that though she’s flattered by the sentiments, there’s no chance she’ll change her mind.
“There will not be a yes,’’ she said in an interview this week. “The Senate is not where I see my future.’’
Why not? “I can’t imagine running for elective office without Teddy at my side, and that really is what it all comes down to,’’ she said. “I hope people respect that.’’
