A Kennedy With Ambitions on a Seat in Hartford

By Mark Pazniokas

Branford – Ted Kennedy Jr. today made his debut as a candidate for public office, blessed and burdened by a name that makes instant allies and passionate enemies of perfect strangers. His father, uncles and brother began earlier, sights set on Congress or beyond. Kennedy, 52, is running for the part-time Connecticut General Assembly.

“It is with great pride tonight that I declare my candidacy for the Connecticut state Senate,” Kennedy said, standing on stage in the auditorium of the James Blackstone Memorial Library in the center of Branford, where he’s lived for two decades with his wife, Kiki. An audience of more than 100 rose and offered sustained applause.

Gina MacDonald-Paige, a friend from the town’s Stony Creek neighborhood, stood and waved a sign. It said, “Finally!!!”

His brother, Patrick, was elected to the Rhode Island legislature at 21 and to Congress at 27. His father, who died in 2009 at age 77 after more than four decades in the U.S. Senate, had urged him many times to run, even if it meant a return to the family’s political base in Massachusetts.
