By  | 

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) _ A person familiar with Caroline Kennedy's decision says she has renewed her determination to win appointment
to the U.S. Senate seat once held by her slain uncle, Sen. Bobby

The source says that after her surviving uncle, Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts, suffered a seizure on Inauguration Day, Caroline Kennedy had misgivings about taking on the new job.

The source spoke to The Associated Press on The condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to speak for Kennedy.

Earlier in the day, The New York Times and New York Post reported that Kennedy had ended her monthlong bid to succeed Hillary Rodham
Clinton, who was confirmed as secretary of state.

Gov. David Paterson has said he hopes to make the appointment by this weekend.
