Edward Markey makes first post-election appearance

MEDFORD -- Senator-elect Edward J. Markey, coming off what he called “a tremendous victory,” greeted constituents this morning at a local diner. Patrons in the midst of breakfast broke into loud applause as he walked in to Dempsey’s Breakfast & Lunch.

The longtime US Representative, who comfortably beat Republican Gabriel E. Gomez in Tuesday’s special election, said he wasn’t sure when he would be sworn in to his new job, but aides expect him to officially become US Senator Markey after the July 4th holiday weekend.
