Joe Kennedy III Gears Up for Congressional Bid

Joseph P. Kennedy III (D) "is taking the final steps to launch a run for Congress this year, hoping to succeed Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) who chose to retire rather than run in his reconfigured district," the Boston Globe reports.

"Kennedy is opening an exploratory committee for the seat, a legal step that will allow him to raise money immediately... Kennedy is scheduled to meet this afternoon with his current boss... to inform him he will be leaving his prosecutor's job to become a political candidate."
