Elizabeth Warren to Visit Medford Caucus Saturday

Medford caucus is scheduled for 10 a.m.

U.S. Senate Candidate Elizabeth Warren will visit Medford's Democratic Committee Caucus Saturday as part of a series of campaign stops on the first day of caucuses in Massachusetts.

Warren, a Democrat from Cambridge, plans to make stops at Democratic meetings in Revere, Medford, Malden, Boston, Brockton, and Newton tomorrow. Her first stop will be in Revere at 9:30 a.m, according to a press release from her campaign.

"Elizabeth is building a strong grassroots campaign centered on her fight for middle class families and her record of standing up to Wall Street and the big banks," the press release said. "The caucus meetings represent an important opportunity for Elizabeth to build on the grassroots support her campaign is attracting."

Medford's caucus is slated for tomorrow at 10 a.m. at City Hall council chambers to select candidates for their party's nomination for the U.S. Senate seat currently occupied by Republican Scott Brown.

Medford will be Warren's second stop, and she aims to be there when the caucus starts, campaign spokeswoman Alethea Harney said Friday.

Warren is expected to give some brief remarks on the importance of the caucuses and "express her message to fight for the middle class," Harney said.

FYI, it's not "9 delegates" it's "9 wards". Each ward will elect 4 delegates, 2 men and 2 women, tomorrow morning, giving Medford Democrats 36 delegates to the state convention. You must be a registered Democrat by Dec 31st to participate in the caucuses.

Thanks Alicia. That line has been removed.
