(MyFoxBoston.com) – Rep. Ed Markey has been serving the state of Massachusetts for 37 years, and now the Democrat wants to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by John Kerry; however, before he can claim the seat he must face Republican and former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez in a special election to be held June 25.
Rep. Markey has served on powerful committees in Washington and is the Dean of the Massachusetts Congressional Delegation. He's been consistent on where he stands on the issues. He supports women's rights to choose and is a staunch supporter of gun control.
FOX 25's Maria Stephanos traveled to Rep. Markey's home in Malden Thursday to get a more personal look the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate.
