Patrick Kennedy Endorses Moran for Virginia Governor

May 15, 2009

(AP) - In Virginia's Democratic gubernatorial primary, it's becoming a game of big names.

Congressman Patrick Kennedy, son of Senator Ted Kennedy,
endorsed Brian Moran on Thursday.

That was the same day one of Moran's rivals, Terry McAuliffe,
campaigned in Norfolk with former President Bill Clinton. McAuliffe
also made stops Tuesday with hip-hop star will.i.am.

McAuliffe, Moran and state Senator Creigh Deeds are
battling toward a June 9 primary. The winner takes on uncontested
Republican Bob McDonnell this fall.

The Rhode Island congressman wasn't the only Kennedy whose
backing Moran will have.

Ethel Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy's widow, is hosting a May 27
fundraiser at the family's home in McLean.
