Joe Kennedy III Supporters the Gift That Keeps On Giving When It Comes To Massachusetts ‘Typos’

August 31, 2020

A Boston-based union supporting Congressman Joseph P. Kennedy III’s campaign for U.S. Senate ran a print ad in a Worcester daily newspaper over the weekend saying that a vote for Kennedy is a vote “for Worchester.”

The ad was paid for by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 103, which blamed the mistake on the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, which did not accept blame for it, according to The Boston Herald.

On July 28, Kennedy’s campaign sent out a press release criticizing Markey for overlooking the towns of Dana, Dudley, Enfield, and Prescott – which were disincorporated by the state in 1938 as part of a massive land taking and flooding to form the Quabbin Reservoir.

Kennedy is running against incumbent U.S. Senator Ed Markey in the Democratic primary Tuesday, September 1.

If elected, Kennedy would join the state’s senior senator, Elizabeth Warren, who during a re-election campaign debate in October 2018 mispronounced the name of the Massachusetts town the Cape Cod Canal goes through. Instead of “Bourne,” Warren said “Bern.”
