BOSTON (AP) — Republican U.S. Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez is hoping to get a needed boost of cash and enthusiasm when U.S. Senator John McCain, an Arizona Republican and fellow Navy veteran, stops by for a fundraiser and morning rally.

The Monday rally is planned for a Boston VFW post in the city’s Dorchester neighborhood. Tickets to the fundraiser range from $2,600 for lunch to $37,000 per person for a VIP round-table.

Democratic candidate Edward Markey on Monday is planning to attend a Congressional Badge of Bravery Ceremony at the Moakley Federal Courthouse in Boston to honor Woburn Police Officer Mark Gibbons for his actions after a jewelry store robbery.

Markey could also release six years of tax returns as early as this week. Gomez has already released six years of returns.

The election is June 25.
