Senator Edward M. Kennedy has represented Massachusetts in the United States Senate for forty-seven years. He was elected in 1962 to finish the final two years of the Senate term of his
brother, Senator John F. Kennedy, who was elected President in 1960. Since then, Kennedy has been re-elected to eight full terms, and is now the second most senior member of the Senate, and the third-longest-serving senator of all time.
Throughout his career, Kennedy has fought for issues that benefit the citizens of Massachusetts and the nation. His effort to make quality health care accessible and affordable to every American is a battle that Kennedy has been waging ever since he arrived in the Senate. In addition, Kennedy is active on a wide range of other issues, including education reform and immigration reform, raising the minimum wage, defending the rights of workers and
their families, strengthening civil rights, assisting individuals with disabilities, fighting for cleaner water and cleaner air, and protecting and strengthening Social Security and Medicare.
Kennedy is the youngest of nine children of Joseph P. Kennedy and Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, and is a graduate of Harvard University and the University of Virginia Law School. Kennedy
lives in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, with his wife Victoria Reggie Kennedy. This bobblehead is made of high-quality polyresin, and ships in a colorful collector's box with molded styrofoam protection.
