WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will travel to Boston next week to lend his support to the Democratic candidate in a special Senate race in Massachusetts.
Obama planned to be in Boston on Wednesday to give a boost to Rep. Edward Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat, Markey's campaign spokesman confirmed.
Two Democratic officials, who weren't authorized to discuss Obama's plans ahead of the announcement and spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed he would also attend a morning fundraiser for Markey at Copley Plaza.
Obama endorsed Markey last month, calling him a "passionate and effective champion for middle class and working families." Last week first lady Michelle Obama campaigned for Markey in Massachusetts.
The Boston Herald first reported Obama's trip. The special election to replace former Sen. John Kerry is on June 25.
