In the past half century, Massachusetts has launched the failed candidacies of a string of presidential hopefuls (Romney, Kerry, Dukakis, Tsongas, Ted Kennedy).

  • Rep. Seth Moulton is a veteran who served four tours of duty in Iraq, and is a harsh Trump critic.
  • Rep. Joe Kennedy, a great-nephew of John F. Kennedy, recently hit the road to Cleveland and Flint, Mich.
