Patrick Kennedy chairing Providence fundraiser for Joseph P. Kennedy III

January 10, 2012

Former US Representative Patrick J. Kennedy is co-charing a January 28 fundraiser in Providence for Joseph P. Kennedy III, and plans to energetically support his cousin’s campaign to succeed outgoing Democratic Congressman Barney Frank, RIPR has learned.

The January 28 fundraiser, location TBA, is the first Rhode Island event for Joseph Kennedy’s nascent Massachusetts congressional run.

The benefit will be co-chaired by Chris Vitale and Gerry Harrington of the Capitol City Group, who are each long-time supporters of Patrick Kennedy. Vitale worked on Patrick Kennedy’s first campaign for Congress, in 1994.

A source familiar with the fundraiser for Joseph Kennedy says, “I think it’s safe to say Patrick is going to be very aggressive in his support of his cousin and bring his energy to Joe’s effort.”

As a former head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Patrick Kennedy is a very experienced fundraiser and has a wealth of contacts.
