The seat — which includes Branford, Guilford, Durham, Killingworth, Madison and North Branford — currently is held by Ed Meyers. The Democrat, a Guilford resident, has held the post since 2005.

Citing unnamed sources, BranfordSeven reports that Meyers will be retiring, with Kennedy expected to make his official campaign announcement this Tuesday at the Blackstone Library.

Wow, you have a full plate of liberal rejoinders! However, you have an educated and knowledgeable senior citizen here with the news that all of those Old Testament laws were dropped when Jesus came as a human to earth and became the "lamb" sacrifice-giving all new laws based on God's grace and our simple faith in His death and resurrection! May God open your heart and eyes! Oh, would you be so kind as to click on a song that I wrote and at least listen once? http://www.jango.com/music/Tammy+Eccles?l=0

You sure about that? The Ten Commandments are in the Old Testament. And there not liberal anything . They were put in the Bible well before there was such a thing as democrats or Republicans. However Republicans think they know the Bible better then the guys that wrote it when they are clueless.

Here are the same Ten Commandments in the New Testament. http://godmadeus.com/tencommand/tencommandments.php Repubs are not perfect-but there does seem to be more fundamental Christians Repub. and more liberal Catholics. Please listen to my song-copy and paste. I thank you for a more peasant rebuttal.

Glad to hear that Ted Kennedy Jr.,(D) is running for State Senator (CT). He could continue as a corporate lawyer and make plenty of money , but has elected to serve his country and its people in the finest Democrat tradition. The usual , grumpy guys have responded in their name calling, anti-progressive fashion. Here's the real problem- anyone that is for civil rights and supports programs for low income and elderly are on their hit list. Republicans would privatize SS, give a voucher to Medicare recipients , then tell them they're on their own , repeal Obamacare ( because they already have their coverage), repress voter registration , repeal all guns laws in a minute. Why? Because they said they would. So the grumps complain about socialism , never thinking they will be touched. Ignorance is bliss.
