Massachusetts Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy III (D-Newton) is drawing a primary challenge from his political left. Former Wall Street regulator Ihssane Leckey announced at the beginning of the holiday weekend that she would run against the four-term legacy Congressman and criticized his remark that we should be striving for “moral capitalism.” Ms. Lecky is running as a Democratic Socialist.
It is unlikely that she will be able to deny Rep. Kennedy re-nomination, but the contest may be worth watching.
