Markey says Biden will make campaign swing in Massachusetts

Vice President Joe Biden will visit the Brockton area next week on behalf of US Representative Edward J. Markey, the Democratic Senate nominee told state lawmakers on Thursday, according to several people in the room.

In a meeting with dozens of Democratic legislators at a Boston hotel before a State House ceremony honoring the late governor Argeo Paul Cellucci, Markey told group that this weekend’s campaign stop in Worcester by former president Bill Clinton would be followed by a vice-presidential visit.

Biden would be the fourth major national Democrat in less than a month to come to Markey’s aid in his special Senate election campaign against private equity investor and former Navy SEAL Gabriel E. Gomez. Michelle Obama came to Boston last month and President Obama rallied a Roxbury Crossing crowd on Wednesday.

Markey campaign officials declined comment.
