Governor Visits, Candidates Rally Western Mass Support

(WGGB) — In the days leading up to the Special Senate Election to fill John Kerry’s vacated seat on Tuesday, June 25th, the candidates are ramping up their efforts in Western Mass.

Republican candidate Gabrielle Gomez plans to visit Springfield, Chicopee and Agawam on Sunday. These are among his two dozen campaign stops in the days leading up to the election.

Democrat Ed Markey met with volunteers alongside Vice President Joe Biden in Dartmouth on Saturday, and will be at the Palazzo Cafe in Springfield at 10 a.m. on Monday morning.

Markey got some extra help Saturday, as Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick was in Springfield hoping to give a final boost to his party member.

“I can’t comment on the competitor’s campaign, but Ed Markey’s campaign is a statewide campaign,” Patrick said, “because he believes that his representation should be statewide.”
