Kennedy Makes Plans For Departure From Senate

The Boston Globe reports that Senator Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts has begun conversations to modify the state succession law to ensure that Mass. has two senators.

Hopefully the Mass. legislature can make this change quickly. This announcement from Kennedy does sound as if he plans to step down when the law is changed if he does not die before then.

Unfortunately the Globe reports that there may not be any political will to change the law.

I have asserted in the past that Kennedy and Senator Robert Byrd both retire giving Dems two useful votes in the senate. Sphere: Related Content
