BOSTON (AP) — Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren are campaigning with some well-known figures, focusing in part on veterans’ issues.
Sen. John McCain of Arizona will appear with Brown at a Saturday morning rally in Melrose at the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial building. They'll be joined by 6th Congressional District candidate Richard Tisei, who’s in a heated race with Rep. John Tierney.
Warren will campaign with former Sen. Max Cleland of Georgia, who, like McCain, is a decorated Vietnam veteran. Cleland lost his legs and an arm in that war. McCain has lingering physical effects from more than five years as a prisoner of war. Warren and Cleland will attend a midday rally in Beverly, joined by Tierney.
Later, Warren and Cleland attend a labor rally in Hopkinton with 4th Congressional District candidate Joe Kennedy III.
