The Boston Globe is reporting that Joe Kennedy III, a 31-year-old prosecutor and son of former Rep. Joe Kennedy, might run for the Democratic nomination of the redrawn Barney Frank district seat.
Kennedy, a Harvard Law School graduate, was in the DR as a PCV. If he were to win, he would be the fifth RPCV in Congress. He is also the first in the fourth generation of Kennedys to thrust himself into electoral politics. He is the second Kennedy to join the Peace Corps. A cousin Maeve Kennedy McKean was an English teacher in Mozambique. She currently works at the Department of Health and Human Services.
