Excerpts from a posting today on the Libertarian Party blog:
Joe Kennedy, a member of the Libertarian Party, is running to fill the unexpired Senate term of the deceased Massachusetts Senator Edward Kennedy. The special election will be held on January 19, 2010.
David Blau, chair of the Libertarian Party of Massachusetts, says, “While [Mr. Kennedy] will appear on the ballot as an Independent due to a provision of state law, I have spoken with him at length and believe him to be an excellent libertarian candidate.”
On his website, Mr. Kennedy claims no relation to the family or relatives of President John F. Kennedy. He was born in Boston, has spent most of his life in Massachusetts, and works in the technology field.
