August 5, 2020

U.S. Representative Joseph P. Kennedy III displayed a Boston Bruins pennant on the wall behind him during an online forum Tuesday night.

Kennedy is running for U.S. Senate against incumbent Ed Markey in the September 1 Democratic primary. He appeared Tuesday, August 4 in a Zoom forum that featured questions from formerly incarcerated people about the criminal justice system.

The Bruins are currently playing for seeding in the National Hockey League playoffs.

Both candidates have sought to emphasize what they describe as their commitment to local professional sports teams.
