Rep. Joe Kennedy, 38, confirmed reports that he is considering running a Senate run
Democratic Rep. Joe Kennedy, 38, confirmed reports that he is considering running for Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey's seat in 2020.
"Over the past few weeks I've begun to consider a run for the U.S. Senate. This isn't a decision I'm approaching lightly and -- to be completely candid -- I wasn't expecting to share my thoughts so soon," he wrote on Facebook Monday morning.
Kennedy, who's been the congressman for Massachusetts' 4th Congressional District since 2013, has seen local support for a potential Senate run in recent weeks.
