Vice President Joe Biden will campaign for Democratic Senate nominee Edward J. Markey in South Boston and Dartmouth on Saturday, according to a White House official.

Markey has maintained a light public schedule, but has enjoyed heavy support from nationally prominent Democrats. Biden has previously headlined a fundraiser for Markey, and President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and former President Bill Clinton have all campaigned in-state for him.

Republican nominee Gabriel E. Gomez is scheduled to participate in a town hall forum at UMass Dartmouth on Wednesday night.
