    Kennedy is the last surviving brother of John F Kennedy, the former president who was assassinated on November 22, 1963.

    A critic of George Bush, the current US president, Kennedy is a supporter of Barack Obama, who is running for the Democratic nomination to contest a presidential election in November.
     
    First elected to the senate in 1962, he is the second longest-serving senator after Robert Byrd of West Virginia.
