NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Ted Kennedy Jr. is expected to announce Tuesday that he's running for the state Senate in Connecticut.

Two people briefed on the decision say the son of the late U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts will announce Tuesday evening that he intends to seek the Democratic nomination for the 12th Senatorial District. They spoke to The Associated Press on Monday on condition of anonymity because Kennedy wants to make the announcement.

Kennedy is 52-year-old health care lawyer who lives in Branford and has been mentioned as a possible political candidate for years. He said last month he was considering running for the seat...

Conntecticut's 12th Senatorial District is comprised of the towns of Branford, Durham, Guilford, Killingworth, Madison and North Branford. It's currently represented by "Guilford Democrat Edward Meyer, who is retiring," according to the AP story.

Here's the Wiki page on Ted Kennedy, Jr.

The 12th Senatorial District is in Democrat Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro's Congressional District (CT-03). Ms. DeLauro is 71 and she's been in office since 1991.

In 1980, Joe Lieberman, then majority leader of the CT State Senate, ran for Congress in CT-03 and lost to his Republican challenger.

Now dark blue, CT-03 is comprised of the following towns and cities:

Fairfield County - Shelton (part) and Stratford.

New Haven County - Ansonia, Beacon Falls, Bethany, Branford, Derby, East Haven, Guilford, Hamden, Milford, Naugatuck, New Haven, North Branford, North Haven, Orange, Prospect, Seymour, Wallingford, Waterbury (part), West Haven, and Woodbridge.

Middlesex County - Durham, Middlefield, and Middletown (part).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
