MA-SEN: Sinema says she would back Kennedy in race against Markey

Sinema said she is encouraging Kennedy to become a Senate candidate for the 2020 race. The moderate Democrat worked with Kennedy as a House representative.

“Joe Kennedy is an outstanding champion for his state. I worked closely with him in the U.S. House where he has relentlessly tackled challenges facing America’s everyday families," Sinema said in a statement provided to The Hill. "He’s a fresh thinker who can bring people together to get things done. He will make a terrific U.S. Senator and I couldn’t be more proud to support my friend.”

Politico was first to report the support.

If Kennedy, who is considering a Senate bid were to run, he'd go up against Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) in the primary.

A Suffolk University/Boston Globe survey found Kennedy leading Markey in a theoretical head-to-head.

2. i love you ed, but

this would be a good time for one of our elder statesmen to be graceful, and acknowledge the need to let the next gen in on the game.
we could generate a lot more interest in the senate races if there was a bit of a changing of the guard. this is how the bench grows.
we can see from the pres field what a deep bench the party has.
but it requires at least a little oxygen.

go out on top, ed.

3. I like Joe Kennedy and saw him speak and met him in 2015. However I don't support him running

against Ed Markey.
