The Lodge Fight IV.
Kenny & Bobby became friends playing football together at Harvard.
Kenny went to work in Jack's congressional office in Boston. There he learned that JFK had decided to run for the U.S. Senate.
Kenny writes that in the 1st 2 months, the Kennedy campaign was plagued by disorganization.
There was no statewide KENNEDY FOR U.S. SENATE organization.
Bob Kennedy came to the rescue.
Just 26 years old & with little knowledge of state politics, Robert F. Kennedy sacrificed his job at the Justice Department to come to Massachusetts to manage JFK's Senate campaign.*
*It is Kenneth O'Donnell's opinion that had RFK not done so, Jack Kennedy would have been defeated.
