Chris Kennedy’s break from tradition
July 6th, 2017
Chris Kennedy had to break it to his family that he wouldn’t be joining them for July 4 festivities on Cape Cod.
Instead, he marched in parades promoting his bid for governor of Illinois.
“His family was like ‘Wait a minute,’” an aide told me.
The Kennedys have for years come together on the Cape to celebrate Chris Kennedy and his sister Kathleen Kennedy’s birthdays. They were both born July 4—he in 1963, she a few years earlier.
