There is speculation that President Carter is leading a campaign to convince Senator Edward Kennedy not to contest the president in the Democratic Party primary. Senator Kennedy is under pressure to clarify his stand about the rumor that he will run for the presidency. Republicans welcome the news of Kennedy's staying out of presidential candidacy as they believe that he has better chances of winning than President Carter.
