US Rep. Lynch Falls Ill on Eve of Election


BOSTON (AP) — Democratic Massachusetts Senate candidate Stephen Lynch has cancelled most public events on the eve of the primary election because he is ill.

U.S. Rep. Lynch’s campaign says all public events have been canceled Monday except for a scheduled rally at the Iron Workers Hall in South Boston at 7 p.m.

Lynch is facing off against fellow U.S. Rep. Edward Markey in the Democratic primary on Tuesday.

State Rep. Daniel Winslow, businessman Gabriel Gomez and former U.S. attorney Michael Sullivan are squaring off in the Republican primary.

The primary winners face each other in the special election June 25 for the seat vacated when John Kerry was named U.S. Secretary of State.
