Joe Kennedy Nabs Congress Seat

Source: ABC News



Joseph Kennedy III, the great-nephew of president John F. Kennedy, won election to Congress today, marking the return of the Kennedy clan to the federal government for the first time since Patrick Kennedy resigned from the House in 2010.

Kennedy will fill the seat vacated by Rep. Barney Frank, who retires this year. The seat will remain Democratic. Kennedy, the grandson of Senator Robert F. Kennedy and the son of six-term Congressman Joe Kennedy II, is a Harvard Law graduate, a former member of the Peace Corps, and prosecutor who most recently worked as an Assistant District Attorney for Middlesex County, Massachusetts.

3. No denying that visage.

 

I'm guessing the Kennedy legacy will continue for a long time to come.
