McConnell moves into offices of late Sen. Kennedy

LOUISVILLE, KY (AP) - Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is

moving into the office suites of his longtime office neighbor and

political opposite, the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass.

The Kentucky Republican's offices are moving into Kennedy's old

suite in the Russell Senate Office Building by spring.

Along with Kennedy, who died in August 2009, two Kentucky

senators had occupied some of the rooms that make up the suite. The

Courier-Journal reports that Sen. John Robison, R-Ky., in 1930, and

Sen. Earle Clements, D-Ky., in 1951-52, held spots in the office.

Kentucky's new junior senator, Rand Paul, who is housed with his

staff in temporary offices in the courtyard of the Russell

building, will be in permanent offices by spring.
