Connecticut Senate: Kennedy Won’t Run

The son of “the late Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy says he won’t run for the seat held by retiring Connecticut U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman because he wants to spend more time with his two children,” the AP reports.

WFSB-TV reports Edward M. Kennedy Jr. made the statement Tuesday night at the JFK Legacy Dinner in Bridgeport. The event marks the 50th anniversary of the inauguration of President John F. Kennedy.

Lieberman announced last month he won’t seek a fifth term, ending a political career spanning four decades.

Kennedy is a lawyer who lives in Branford. He won rave reviews for the eulogy he delivered at his father’s funeral in August 2009.
