  • Ed Markey losing to Joe Kennedy, needs game changer to catch up

    Edward Markey appears headed for a bruising defeat unless he can turn around his struggling campaign in the next two months — a difficult ask for a 73-year-old incumbent running against a well-funded young heir to a political dynasty. The latest developments are not good for Markey — and we’re not even talking about his staggeringly stupid decision to pose on his porch with an American flag on the floor. Democratic sources say two new polls in separate congressional districts show Markey trailing U.S. Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy III by double digits. One of the polls was from a Democratic...

    Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., said on Sunday that he believes the $3 trillion Heroes Act that the Democrat-led House passed late last week has no chance of clearing the Senate – arguing that it is more of a Democrat wish list than it is legislation meant to ease the economic blow from the coronavirus pandemic. “It's not going to pass the Senate, nor should it,” Kennedy said during an interview on “Sunday Morning Futures.” “My fellow Republicans in the Senate have tried to see things from the speaker's point of view, but we can't get our heads that far up...

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Cambridge police have issued an apology following a profanity-laced and politically-charged tweet Sunday afternoon. The tweet, was sent in response to a WCVB tweet of an OTR interview this morning with Representative Joseph Kennedy III. The Cambridge Police tweet used profanity in referring to Kennedy and made an insulting remark that was apparently about Sen. Ed Markey, who Kennedy is challenging in this year’s Democratic primary. Cambridge PD tweeted a statement after we contacted them. It explained that a member of the department, who had access to the department’s Twitter account, inadvertently posted the political commentary on...

    Ethel Kennedy has learned to stop worrying and love Che Guevara. The 92-year-old Kennedy clan matriarch’s late husband Robert and brother-in-law, President John F. Kennedy, may have faced off against a Russia-aligned Cuba in the infamous 1962 Missile Crisis — but that didn’t stop her from putting the face of the communist nation’s revolutionary hero on a mantle at her Palm Beach home, The Post has learned. In fact, her family says she’s been a fan of Guevara for years — and makes no apology about it. “My mom loves Che Guevara. Her dog is named Che,” her son, Robert...

    Joe Kennedy III needed the convention. Not that he could have won it. He did not have the votes. But he could have used it as a platform to explain to Massachusetts voters — especially Democrats — why he’d make a better U. S. Senator than incumbent Sen. Ed Markey, a fellow Democra

Asked if Ford might reprise his role, Kennedy said he would. “Harrison Ford will be involved, yeah,” she said. “It’s not a reboot; it’s a continuation.” Kennedy added, “He can’t wait.”

    DES MOINES, Iowa -- Former Vice President Joe Biden has picked up the endorsement of Caroline Kennedy, daughter of the late John F. Kennedy. As the Democratic presidential hopefuls turn to New Hampshire, Kennedy called Biden the party’s “best bet to win the White House, keep the gains we made in the House, and put the Senate in play.” The former ambassador to Japan announced her decision to endorse Biden in an opinion article Tuesday in the Boston Globe. The endorsement comes the day after Iowa’s caucuses, which ran into technical problems that resulted in delays in results being released.

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr has said that President Donald Trump 'discredited the American experiment' in an interview published Friday. 'I think the problem is, number one, he is a bully. And you know, I don't like bullies. And I don't think ... that that's part of America's tradition,' Kennedy Jr said in an interview with Yahoo Finance. 'I think, in many ways, he's discredited the American experiment with self-governance,' added Kennedy Jr, an anti-vaccination activist who is the nephew of former president John F. Kennedy and son of his attorney general, Robert F. Kennedy. Kennedy Jr went on to lament...

    Sen. John Kennedy said Wednesday he wanted to throw up after reading the inspector general’s report on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign. “About 15 percent of the way through it made me want to heave,” the Louisiana Republican said. “About 25 percent of the way through it I thought I dropped acid. It’s surreal.” Mr. Kennedy’s comments came as Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about his report’s contents.

    Hillary Clinton on Monday hit Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., for his insistence that Russia and Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election, which the Democratic candidate lost to Republican Donald Trump. "Sen. Kennedy, why are you parroting Russian propaganda that U.S. intelligence officials tell us are designed to divide our country?" Clinton, the former Obama-era secretary of state, asked on Twitter. "Did you miss the briefing that day?" In a contentious interview Sunday on "Meet the Press" on NBC News, the first-term Kennedy insisted: "I think both Russia and Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election." He added that news organizations provided...
