RFK's Grandson Decides Against House Run

Sunday, 28 Feb 2010 04:09 PM

The grandson of Robert F. Kennedy has decided against running for the U.S. House from Massachusetts this year.

Joseph P. Kennedy III told The Associated Press on Sunday that "I've got a job I love being an assistant district attorney on the Cape, and I want to get better at it at this point."

A top state Democrat had said earlier in the weekend that Kennedy was weighing a race if Rep. William Delahunt were to decide against seeking re-election.

Delahunt and the rest of the Massachusetts Democratic establishment were rocked in January when Republican Scott Brown staged an upset to win the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by Kennedy's uncle, Edward Kennedy.

Joseph Kennedy III is one of the twin sons of former Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy II.
