State Senator Robert A. O'Leary plans to tour the 10th Congressional District Saturday as he kicks off his campaign for the seat that will open up due to the retirement of US Representative William Delahunt.
O'Leary plans to make stops in Quincy, Scituate, Plymouth, and Barnstable. O'Leary lives in Barnstable and has represented the Cape and Islands in the state Senate since winning the seat in the 2000 election.
O'Leary is competing with Norfolk District Attorney William R. Keating for the Democratic nomination. Representative Jeff Perry of Sandwich and former state treasurer Joe Malone are vying for the GOP nod.
