Former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown.

Senator Scott P. Brown, largely absent from the Senate campaign trail after deciding not to run himself, will appear an election-eve rally for Republican nominee Gabriel E. Gomez, a top Gomez campaign official said Thursday.

The rally, on Monday night in Quincy, will be the GOP pair’s first joint public appearance, though Brown has helped Gomez raise money.


Brown has said he had been willing to do what the campaign asks of him, within the limits of his schedule.

But by keeping his distance from Gomez, Brown has also prevented this year’s special election from serving as a referendum on his own abbreviated term.
