Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg may be interested in becoming Senator
This is an Associated Press piece published at 4PM yesterday.
WASHINGTON -- Democratic officials say Caroline Kennedy has spoken to New York Gov. David Paterson about the Senate seat that will come open when Hillary Rodham Clinton becomes secretary of state.
Paterson's office says that the governor had been approached by several candidates for the job but that he would not discuss private conversations.
Kennedy is the daughter of President John F. Kennedy and a niece of Edward and Robert Kennedy. Robert Kennedy held the New York seat from 1965 until his assassination in 1968.
Democrats familiar with the conversation with Kennedy spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to divulge it
