A hotly-contested congressional race in Massachusetts is getting some political star power with Vice President Joe Biden scheduled to attend a rally for Democratic candidate Seth Moulton.
Biden planned to address the gathering on Wednesday in Lynn, one of the key cities in the 6th Congressional District. The event comes less than a week before the Nov. 4 election.
Moulton, an Iraq war veteran and political newcomer, upset incumbent U.S. Rep. John Tierney in the September Democratic primary. He is facing Republican Richard Tisei, a former state senator who narrowly lost to Tierney two years ago.
Tisei, meanwhile, was touring a medical device company in Danvers on Wednesday with Republican gubernatorial nominee Charlie Baker. He said Biden's visit showed Moulton's campaign was beholden to Washington power brokers.
