Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-Mass.) announced on Saturday that he would mount a primary challenge to Sen. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) in 2020.
The move tees up a generational showdown between a member of Massachusetts’ most famous political dynasty and a progressive heavyweight with more than four decades of experience in Washington.
The article goes on to state the following:
“This isn’t a time for waiting, for sitting on the sidelines, or for playing by rules that don’t work anymore. This is the fight of our lives, the fight of my generation — and I’m all in,” Kennedy tweeted Saturday.
In his campaign ad, Kennedy includes footage of a “baby Trump balloon” as he declares, “Donald Trump has forced a reckoning in America.”
Big news: I’m running for US Senate. This isn’t a time for waiting, for sitting on the sidelines, or for playing by rules that don’t work anymore. This is the fight of our lives, the fight of my generation — and I’m all in. I hope you’ll join me at https://t.co/7zwvI9aujq pic.twitter.com/WVkNLwCJbg

The Hill notes that Kennedy starts his Senate bid with an early lead in the polls. A survey released earlier this month showed him leading Markey by 9 points in a five-way contest, and leading by 14 points in a two-race between himself and Markey.
