A Political 'Donnybrook' Predicted With Kennedy Vs Markey In Massachusetts

Sen. Markey and Rep. Kennedy

      Massachusetts Congressman Joseph Kennedy III reportedly plans to announce Saturday that he will run for the U.S. Senate next year.

       The 38-year-old heir to the Kennedy family political dynasty will challenge Senator Ed Markey, a 73-year-old fellow Democrat who is the longest-serving member of the state’s congressional delegation.

        For an analysis of the impending clash, WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Tim Vercellotti, political science professor at Western New England University.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
