Mass. Senate Candidates To Appear In Labor Day Parade

This article is more than 7 years old.

Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren both plan to take part in Monday's Labor Day parade in Marlborough.

The parade steps off at noon from the Marlborough Fire Station.

Warren's Monday schedule also includes remarks at the Central Massachusetts AFL-CIO Labor Day Breakfast in Worcester and the Greater Boston Labor Council Breakfast in Boston.

Warren has already won the endorsement of the AFL-CIO and other labor unions which traditionally back Democrats.

"The votes that Brown has taken against us in Congress are on important issues. And if we work, the unions work, we'll win the labor vote for Elizabeth Warren," said Richard Rogers, of the Greater Boston Labor Council.

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, and U.S. Reps. John Tierney and William Keating, were also scheduled to speak at the council's breakfast in Boston.
