Joseph Kennedy III Starts his launching campaign for Congress

 

His campaign, Joseph Kennedy III has officially launch just for the U.S. House on Thursday, embracing his family’s legacy in Massachusetts while also acknowledging that name alone will not assure him electoral success. Joseph Kennedy launches now his campaign for congress.

“You’ve got to earn it,” Kennedy told reporters after greeting commuters at a train station in Newton, the first of several stops the Democrat planned to make in the reconfigured 4th Congressional District. “You’ve got to go out every day and talk to people, listen to their concerns, shake more hands, knock on more doors, take more phone calls.”

Apparently, Kennedy, 31, is seeking the seat held by the retiring U.S. Rep. Barney Frank. He released a three-minute video announcement on his website early Thursday before heading out on the tour that also will take him to the largely blue-collar communities of Milford, Attleboro, Taunton and Westport.

According to international reports, my family has had the great privilege of serving Massachusetts before. They taught me that public service is an honor given in trust and that trust must be earned each and every day,” Kennedy said in the video. “That is exactly what I intend to do.”

Kennedy is the redheaded grandson of the late Senator and U.S. Attorney General Robert Kennedy and grandnephew of President John F. Kennedy. His father, Joseph P. Kennedy II was also a former congressman. Kennedy served in the Peace Corps after attending college. He then went to Harvard Law School and worked as a prosecutor and assistant district attorney before stepping down in January to form an exploratory committee.

Kennedy’s official announcement was predictable. He has been endorsed by major labor unions and recent poll has him with a commanding lead over his Republican opponent Sean Bielat, who previously lost to Barney Frank.
