Democrats exiting (or not boarding) the sinking ship?--Part 25: Joe Kennedy III 

The Boston Globe reports that Joe Kennedy III will not run for the Massachusetts 10th district House seat that Democratic Congressman Bill Delahunt has represented since 1996.

Kennedy, 29, is the son of former 8th district Congressman Joe Kennedy II and is currently an Assistant District Attorney for the Cape and Islands (Barnstable, Dukes and Nantucket Counties, i.e., Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket). Kennedy said he wanted to continue his work as a prosecutor. He might also have noticed that Republican Scott Brown won 60% of the vote in the district in the January 19 special Senate election.

This is shaping up as a year when a lot of Democrats are finding it more attractive to do other things than run for Congress.
