MassLive: US Sen. Edward Markey visits Springfield to deliver endorsement for Nick Cocchi for Hampden County Sheriff

As the race for Hampden County Sheriff enters the final days of the campaign, Democrat Nick Cocchi has earned the endorsement of U.S. Sen. Ed Markey.

Markey, D-Mass., announced his support for Cocchi Thursday at noon inside Cocchi’s campaign headquarters at 1915 Wilbraham Road in Springfield.

The endorsement comes less than a week from the 2016 election.

Cocchi said in a press release that receiving the senator’s support for Sheriff is great not only for his campaign, but also stands as a testament to the work that both will be able to accomplish if he wins the office.
