"We commend all of the Democratic candidates for the races they've run and the critical issues they've raised in past few months. Each of the candidates is a friend of Senator Kennedy and our family, and each share the values that motivated him in service to the Commonwealth and in his tireless commitment to opportunity, justice and equality for all."
