Joe Kennedy III: A Shoo-In for Congress Seat?


Having raised $1.3 million this past quarter (and with $2 million already in the bank), Joseph P. Kennedy III may be “impossible to beat” in his race for a Massachusetts congressional seat, according to political observers. Considering his balance sheet, he could easily open the next chapter of the Kennedy political legacy. But at least one person isn’t buying it — Kennedy’s opponent, Sean Bielat. “He’s running on his family name and using his family connection’s money,” Bielat told the Herald. “It’s not a surprise. You don’t hear him talk about issues. What you do see is a lot of invitations to high-end fundraisers floating around the Internet.” [Herald]
