After giving it serious consideration, Ted Kennedy Jr. has decided not to run for Massachusetts’ soon-to-be open seat in the U.S. Senate.
"Over the last several days, many people have asked that I consider running for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts," Kennedy said in a statement obtained by CNN. "I am extremely grateful for all the offers of support that I have received.
"As a healthcare lawyer and disability rights activist who was raised to believe in public service, I have always had an interest in public policy development, advocacy and political action. Although I have a strong desire to serve in public office, I consider Connecticut to be my home, and hope to have the honor to serve at another point in my future."
