The son of late Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy is following in his father's footsteps.
Ted Kennedy, Jr. announced he's running for the State Senate in Connecticut.
"Running for public office really feels like a natural continuation of my life's work and my life's goals. From an early age I learned from my family that every person can and should make a contribution to their community and I believe that public service is an important part of our civic duty,” Kennedy said.
There are no other declared candidates, but republicans say they will contest the seat.?
