Patrick Kennedy, the 21-year-old son of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, has become the latest member of his famous family to win public office, soundly defeating an incumbent in a Democratic primary for the Rhode Island Legislature. Kennedy, a junior at Providence College, beat five-term Rep. John Skeffington 1,324 votes, or 57 percent, to Skeffington's 1,009 votes, or 43 percent. Kennedy wins the office because there is no Republican opposition in November. "They told me to wait my turn. Well, tonight it's our turn for representation that listens to the needs of the people and not the demands of the party bosses," Kennedy told a cheering crowd as his father and other family members looked on. Retorted Skeffington, "I thought they were the party bosses."
