Obama Endorses Markey; First Lady in Boston Wednesday

FILE | A Rockville resident was among the 17 felons pardoned by President Barack Obama on Friday, March 1, 2013.

Boston.com reported Tuesday that President Barack Obama has officially endorsed U.S. Congressman Edward Markey (D-Malden) in his bid to become the next U.S. senator from Massachusetts.

In a statement from Markey’s campaign, Boston.com reported that Obama called Markey “a passionate and effective champion for middle class and working families.”

Markey will face Republican Cohasset businessman and former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez in the June 25 election to replace U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in the Senate.

Earlier this month, Boston.com also reported First Lady Michelle Obama will appear at a fundraiser Wednesday for Markey’s campaign at Taj Boston. According to Boston.com, the minimum contribution for the event is $ 500.

Ramsey is one of a shrinking number of towns holding an April election this year

If you were planning to vote for the next U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, you need to be registered to vote by Wednesday, April 10 for the upcoming April 30 election.

Voters in the First Suffolk Senatorial District will also choose to fill the vacant seat formerly held by Jack Hart will be held on the same date.  

According to Boston’s Election Department, voters who have used absentee ballots in the past must fill out a new application each calendar year. If you’re not sure if you need to re-register, you can call the election department. 

The April 10th date, in addition to being the last day to register to vote, is also the last day you can change your address or party affiliation before the special election. The election department will stay open on Wendesday until 8 p.m. read more

U.S. Senate Candidates Face Off in Debate Wednesday Night

Massachusetts' U.S. Senate candidates.

Five candidates seeking the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by John Kerry will debate for the first time in one place Wednesday night in Needham.

The two Democrats and three Republicans vying for the vacated position will face each other in two separate, 30-minute debates in an event sponsored by the Boston Media Consortium and held at the Channel 5 studios.

The debate will air live from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will be moderated by R.D. Sahl. Patch will be among the media organizations covering the event. The primary election is April 30.

On the Democratic side, U.S. Rep. Ed Markey (D-Malden) will square off against U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-South Boston). In the latest UMass Lowell poll, Markey leads Lynch 50 percent to 29.5 percent, according to the Boston Globe. WBUR/Mass Inc. puts them significantly closer, with Markey up by just seven points.

The three Republican contenders are state Rep. Dan Winslow (R-Norfolk), former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan and former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez. read more
