BOSTON â€” Massachusetts voters are heading to the polls to pick a new U.S. senator.
Democratic U.S. Rep. Edward Markey and Republican Gabriel Gomez scrambled to energize supporters and mobilize get-out-the-vote efforts in the hours leading up to Tuesdayâ€™s special election to succeed John Kerry in the U.S. Senate.
Both candidates made a series of campaign stops Monday, culminating with election eve rallies while their campaigns cranked up their all-important ground games designed to get as many of their voters to the polls as possible on a day when statewide turnout was expected to be light.
Gomez was scheduled to vote early Tuesday in his hometown of Cohasset, with Markey casting his ballot later in the morning in Malden.
Markey, 66, has led in the polls, but said heâ€™s taking nothing for granted.
â€œThere is no overconfidence in this entire operation,â€ Markey told reporters after an evening rally Monday in Malden.
