Edward Markey to be sworn in as senator July 16

Representative Edward J. Markey, the Malden Democrat elected to the Senate in a special election last month, will be sworn in to replace Secretary of State John F. Kerry on July 16, his office said today.

Markey defeated Republican Gabriel Gomez on June 25, following Kerry’s elevation to the State Department in February. Though Markey spent more than 36 years in the House and is one of its most senior members, he will become the junior senator from Massachusetts, lower in seniority than Elizabeth Warren, who took office in January.
