U.S. Senate Race 2020

Why Kennedy had to run

He didn’t want to do it, the polls made him do it. Joe was hoping for Liz to leave as President or take her place in a D administration in 2020. He also knew that Ed was in a career countdown, even if Ed didn’t, and he was willing to wait.

However, two poll in 2018 showing Ed at 26% against Healy and Moulton, also at 26%, meant that someone, literally anyone might beat Markey, think Liss-Rioden. If a low visibility contender started to climb in the polls it could draw the attention of a more serious contender, think Pressley. If elected they become Senior Senator, if Liz was gone, and a national figure if it was a woman, especially a black woman.

As for a rational, simply put, it’s the times we live in, and, after
all………………………………………………..it is the family business.

Average of all polls
Kennedy 39%
Markey 30%
