President Barack Obama

President Barack Obama will campaign in Boston next week for Democratic Congressman Edward Markey in the U.S. Senate special election race, according to an Associated Press report published by CBS Boston.

The president recently issued his endorsement of Markey’s bid and First Lady Michelle Obama also appeared at a Boston fundraiser for Markey.

The AP reports President Obama will attend a fundraiser for Markey in Copley Plaza next Wednesday, June 12.

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.
