Senator Ed Markey and challenger Congressman Joe Kennedy III are busy making their last pitches to Massachusetts voters in the final days of the Democratic primary race.
Rep. Kennedy spent Sunday morning at a coffee shop in Charlestown before heading to Dorchester to join Suffolk County Sheriff Steve Tompkins and Tito Jackson for a campaign event in Quincy. Kennedy was expected to end the day visiting small businesses in New Bedford.
Meanwhile, Sen. Markey began the day with a rally at Cambridge City Hall before heading to Arlington, Newton, Framingham and Natick. Markey will end the day with a drive-in rally in Worcester.
On Saturday, Kennedy met with a couple dozen people at a Worcester restaurant, while Markey campaigned in Holyoke.
"If you have my back for the final three days, I will have your back," Markey said at the event.
The incumbent also attacked his challenger's voting record, saying, "Congressman Kennedy voted for it and we now see the consequences.”
At least two new polls show Markey ahead by 10 or more points, but don't expect Kennedy to slow down in the final three days.
"It is going to be intense, as it should be, right? We’re talking about a United States Senate seat,” Kennedy said.
Congressman Kennedy is hoping he doesn't become the first member of his storied political family to lose an election in Massachusetts, but he says he expects the race to be a close one.
“Support around our Commonwealth is very strong, in communities Worcester and communities like Springfield and Pittsfield and Lawrence and Lowell....”
The winner of Tuesday's primary will move on to the general election in November. There will be a republican challenger but the democrats are expected to keep the Senate seat.
