Kennedy Will Attend Convention

Aug 25, 2008 10:32am

From ABC News’ Rick Klein, author of The Note: After much speculation, Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., has arrived in Denver for the Democratic National Convention.

"Senator Kennedy is in Denver and plans to attend tonight’s tribute to him." said Kennedy spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter told ABC News on Monday. "He’s truly humbled by the outpouring of support, and wouldn’t miss it for anything in the world."    

Cutter said Senator Kennedy plans to attend the convention but she insists that as of now, he has no plans to deliver a speech. But will the Lion of the Senate be able to resist?

A video tribute to Kennedy, D-Mass., is slated for Monday evening to kick off festivities in Denver. Directed by documentary filmmakers Ken Burns and Mark Herzog, the video will be introduced by Kennedy’s niece, Caroline Kennedy. As reported Sunday, the senior Senator from Massachusetts very much wanted to attend the Democratic festivities, but needed sign off from his doctors.

I’ll be blogging all week from Denver — and next week from St. Paul. Check back here for more entries.
