Another Kennedy set to run for Congress: reports

• The
 Joseph P. Kennedy III, a 31-year-old Massachusetts prosecutor, will run for Congress this year in a bid to resurrect the dynasty of America’s most famous political family, reports said Thursday.

Kennedy is in the final stages of preparing a Congressional run, with hopes to succeed retiring Democratic Representative Barney Frank, the Boston Globe and Rhode Island Public Radio reported, quoting family and Democratic sources.

Should Kennedy win a seat in the House of Representatives, his family would return to national politics for the first time since Patrick Kennedy — son of the clan’s late patriarch Edward Kennedy — left office early last year.
 The congressional hopeful, son of former representative Joseph P. Kennedy II and grandson of the assassinated Robert F. Kennedy, is an assistant district attorney in Middlesex county.
