SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - In a last minute change of plans, an appearance by Democratic National Committee Chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, will be held in Springfield instead of Longmeadow.
Wasserman Schultz, who is also a Congresswoman from Florida, will be speaking on Sunday, June 9 at the Sheet Metal Workers Local 63, on Stevens St. at 11:30 a.m., at a ‘Get Out the Vote' rally for Congressman Ed Markey, who is running for the U.S. Senate.
Wasserman Schultz became DNC Chair in 2011 and was President Barack Obama's choice for the position.
The special election for the U.S. Senate will be held on Tuesday, June 25.
Democrat Ed Markey is vying with Republican Gabriel Gomez in that race.
