HARTFORD, Conn. — A nephew of the late President John F. Kennedy is asking Connecticut's Republican candidate for Senate to pull her political advertisement featuring the former president talking about tax cuts, saying it is misleading to voters.

A two-page letter from Edward M. Kennedy Jr. obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday, says Linda McMahon "distorts the legacy of President Kennedy in order to mislead voters into thinking" that he would have supported her position on tax policy.

Kennedy, the son of the late Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy, lives in Connecticut. A message left at his office seeking comment was not immediately returned.

McMahon's 30-second spot features grainy footage from 1963 of Kennedy discussing the importance of tax cuts. A message seeking comment with McMahon's campaign was not immediately returned.
