Ted Kennedy Jr. Eyeing Lieberman’s Seat?

by Daniel Foster

The Boston Herald via Ben Smith:

Kennedy, the middle child of the late senator and his former wife, Joan, has been mentioned as a possible candidate for Lieberman’s seat, which the 23-year senator is giving up when his term ends next year. One Kennedy family friend called the 49-year-old attorney, who lives in Connecticut, a “great candidate.”

“No one knew Lieberman would be getting out. I think Teddy would be the odds-on favorite were he to enter the race,” the friend said. “But I don’t know if this is the right time for him.”

Another Kennedy insider said Ted Kennedy Jr. is a “natural” for the seat.

“Why wouldn’t he be interested in the seat?” said the source. “He is his father’s son.”
