Which Senator Would He Replace?
It appears that with regard to his political options, Congressman Patrick Kennedy is keeping his powder dry and his campaign fund intact. In yesterday’s Washington Post,
… he notes that he is not retiring for good. “I consider it taking a sabbatical,” he says. He will transfer his roughly $500,000 in campaign money to an interest-bearing account, which he says he might tap if he runs for the Senate someday.
In the absence of any relocation announcement, the congressman would presumably run for a Rhode Island Senate seat. Can we know which senator, Jack Reed or Sheldon Whitehouse, the congressman believes is doing an unsatisfactory job and how he would better represent Rhode Island in the US Senate than that incumbent?
