Why is Pat Kennedy in Rhode Island?
All he had to do is wait in Massachusetts for his old man's ticker to shut down and he has himself the Kennedy inherited Senate seat.
What the mentally ill need is long term care for those who can't take care of themselves. Not this.
Little competition if a senate seat opens up, compared to say, MA, where there are other reps lusting after a senate seat, and then staties lusting after a US House seat.
