Joe Biden praises Edward Markey at event

WASHINGTON – Vice President Joe Biden, at a fund-raiser in Washington Tuesday night for US Representative Edward J. Markey, was highly critical of the Republican Party, even as he praised Markey and implored supporters not to take the Massachusetts election for granted.

“Ed Markey in the Senate is not a single vote; Ed Markey in the Senate is part of a movement,” Biden said at an event that raised $250,000 for Markey’s campaign. “Ed Markey in the Senate will command respect and attention the moment he stands on the floor to speak for the first time.”
