Markey to be sworn in as senator Tuesday

US Senator-elect Edward J. Markey officially resigned from his position as a US representative Monday in order to be sworn in to his new job Tuesday morning. His successor will be chosen by the voters of the Fifth Congressional District on Dec. 10.

Markey, a Malden Democrat who won a special election last month to fill the seat vacated by John F. Kerry, is set to be sworn in on the floor of the US Senate by Vice President Joe Biden at 10 a.m.
