  • Description

    Democratic Senator Edward Kennedy announced in Boston on Monday (23 September) that he will not be 3 candidate for the United States' Presidency in 1976.

    The Massachusetts' Senator told a specially-summoned news conference that -- for family reasons -- he had reached an irrevocable decision not to seek the Democratic Presidential nomination in 1976.

    Most observers believe that Senator Kennedy would have been virtually certain of being chosen by his party to contest the selection against the Republican candidate, who is expected to be President Gerald Ford.

    The Senator did, however, say that he would stand for re-election to the Senate in 1976.

    Senator Kennedy's two brothers were assassinated while in political office. President John Kennedy was shot during his Presidency and Senator Robert Kennedy, while he was seeking the Democratic Presidential nomination.
