Kennedy was favored two to one over Republican Sean Bielat in a UMass Lowell-Boston Herald Poll.
Although Joseph Kennedy III has not officially announced his candidacy, a UMass Lowell-Boston Herald Poll shows the young politician is an early favorite in the race for the Fourth Congressional District seat.

His final re-election bid against Bielat was his closest since 1982. Frank acknowledged that redistricting played into his reason not to run. For Bielat, the loss of New Bedford and the addition of more conservative towns like …
