The Harvard Crimson – Ward 21 Endorses Markey in Senate Primary

Members of the Ward 21 Democratic Party Committee, which represents residents of the Allston, Brighton, and Fenway neighborhoods, voted unanimously Saturday morning to endorse U.S. Rep. Edward J. Markey of Malden in his primary battle against U.S. Rep. Stephen F. Lynch of South Boston.

Markey and Lynch, as well as three Republicans, are seeking the U.S. Senate seat vacated Feb. 1 by recently appointed Secretary of State John F. Kerry.

Saturday’s caucus meeting took place at the Brighton Branch of the Boston Public Library and was attended by just 12 eligible voters. To be eligible, voters must be registered Democrats and residents of the Ward 21 polling district and must attend three meetings of the committee within a year.
