Ted Kennedy Jr.
Former Sen. Ed Meyer told WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau that Connecticut lawmakers changed the campaign finance law last spring to allow more money for candidates running for office for the first time.
Republican candidate Bruce Wilson said both he and Kennedy signed a pledge to stay within the limits of the state’s financing, roughly $109,000.
Ted Kennedy Jr. invoked the memory of his famous father in announcing that he’s running for the state Senate in Connecticut.
Two people briefed on the decision say the son of the late U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts will announce Tuesday that he intends to seek the Democratic nomination for the state’s 12th District.
