Congressman Markey Campaigns for Senate in WMass

Democratic campaign workers in Western Mass are feeling energized after a visit from Congressman Ed Markey Sunday.

Congressman Ed Markey’s supporters in the upcoming special Senate election were gathered at Gateway City Arts in Holyoke for an afternoon of training and break-out sessions. Markey showed up a little late, spoke for about 15 minutes, shook hands and posed for photos before speaking briefly with reporters and heading cross town to an event at the Elks Lodge. Markey is battling Congressman Steven Lynch for the Democratic nomination in the race for John Kerry’s former US Senate seat. He said one of his goals as a senator would be to pass comprehensive climate legislation. The primary is April 30 and the special election is June 25.
