Topic - Joseph Kennedy Iii
Last summer, NBA veteran Jason Collins considered joining an old Stanford college roommate, U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy III, at Boston's gay pride parade.
Joseph Kennedy III now has a wedding to look forward to as he considers a congressional run in Massachusetts.
With the family shut out of the White House and Congress for the first time in more than a half-century, a scion of the Kennedy clan on Thursday took the first steps toward a run for retiring Rep. Barney Frank's Fourth District seat in Massachusetts.
Mr. Kennedy said he would make a final decision about whether to run in the coming weeks, but Democratic officials fully expect he will be a candidate.
"I look forward to this new challenge, and to meeting people across the district in the weeks ahead," he said in a statement.
