Two days before voters across the state decide whether to re-elect Sen. Scott Brown or send Elizabeth Warren to Washington, Braintree will host a campaign rally for the Democratic challenger.
The Warren campaign has rented the Braintree High School gymnasium on Sunday, Nov. 4 for an event that kicks-off at 1 p.m. Braintree Public Schools Business Manager Peter Kress confirmed the rental on Thursday night.
Warren is expected to arrive at about 1:30 p.m, Kress said. She previously held a public event in Braintree at Local 369's Emerald Hall in April. During that appearance, Warren, a Harvard University professor, spoke about her humble roots as the daughter of a maintenance man and the quality of life that comes with investing in research and infrastructure.
Brown, a former state legislator, won a special election to fill deceased Sen. Ted Kennedy's seat in 2009. He took the vote in Braintree over Democrat Martha Coakley 62 percent to 37 percent.
The Republican Senator also has a fundraising advantage locally, having raised $16,105 in itemized contributions from Braintree residents through Sept. 30, compared to just $2,079 for Warren, according to an analysis of the Federal Elections Commission database.
