"3rd-Party Candidate Named Kennedy Could Tip Senate Race in Massachusetts"

The NY Times offers this report.

When I see stories like this, and I think about Minnesota, I wonder whether states have an obligation to do something more to promote Condorcet winners, such as requiring runoff elections, allowing only the top two candidates onto the general election ballot, or using IRV.
