HARTFORD, Conn. – With the race for governor down to a few percentage points, the state Democratic Party has spent nearly 20 percent of its campaign funds on one candidate: Ted Kennedy Jr.

Kennedy, the son of U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy Sr. and nephew of President John F. Kennedy is running for state senate in the 12th District, which includes Branford, Madison, Guilford, Killingworth, and Durham.

In his first run for public office, Kennedy has had more money made available to him than most General Assembly candidates can ever expect to see. In addition to a $94,690 grant through the Citizen’s Election program, the state Democratic Party has spent $207,000 of the $1.1 million in its state account on his campaign.
