Senate President Therese Murray will endorse state Representative Martin J. Walsh’s mayoral campaign on Friday, according to people briefed on her plans.

Murray and Walsh will appear together in the Seaport District, and hold an event to launch a phase of the campaign keyed on women’s issues, one of the people familiar with the plans said.
