A Lodge May Face a Kennedy Again in Mass. Senate Election

Nov. 30, 1961 - George Cabot Lodge (right) of Beverly, Mass., formally announced today his candidacy for the Republican nomination for United States Senator in 1962. Mr. Lodge, 34, is a son of Henry Cabot Lodge, Republican nominee for Vice President in 1960. The long-expected declaration made Mr. Lodge the first official entry in the contest to fill the seat occupied by President Kennedy when he was elected to his present office in 1960. Mr. Kennedy won the seat from Mr. Lodge’s father in 1952. There is a strong possibility that one of the candidates for the Democratic nomination will be Edward M. Kennedy (left), the President’s younger brother.
