Outlook: Solid Democratic

Senator-for-life Edward M. Kennedy will get term number…we can’t count that high. He’s been there since receiving his brother’s seat in 1962. Quick: Who held the seat for two years as a seat-warmer between Jack and Teddy? Ex-JFK college friend Ben Smith. Now you can go on “Jeopardy” with a little more confidence.


Edward Kennedy (I) – Democrat – Second Quarter Raised: $651,740 | Cash on Hand: $8,708,256

Kenneth G. Chase – Republican – Second Quarter Raised: $214,652 | Cash on Hand: $33,737
