Kennedy Matriarch to Host Moran Event

Amy Gardner

Ethel Kennedy, widow of Robert F. Kennedy, will host a fundraiser in May for Democratic gubernatorial contender Brian Moran.

The event will take place May 27 at Hickory Hill, the 19th-century family homestead in McLean where the Kennedys raised their 11 children. McLean is also where Moran rival Terry McAuliffe lives.

As matriarch of the Kennedy clan, Ethel Kennedy's decision to host a fundraiser for Moran could boost his standing with Democratic activists -- and serve as a counterweight to former president Bill Clinton, who is stumping for McAuliffe.
