South Jersey sources report regularly seeing U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) in the vicinity of Atlantic City.
The 43-year old retiring congressman’s girlfriend reportedly lives in the area.
It’s serious, according to sources.
She’s also a teacher, leading to speculation that if Kennedy ties the knot and settles in New Jersey, the Democratic Party scion could be a willing -and personally motivated – participant in taking up the cause of the flagging New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) troops against Gov. Chris Christie.
