Democratic Senate Candidates To Debate In Springfield

With just a week until the primaries in the Massachusetts Senate special election, the two Democrat candidates will participate in a debate Tuesday evening in Springfield. 

This debate  between Ed Markey and Stephen Lynch was rescheduled when the  candidates suspended their campaigns following the Boston Marathon bombings.  The senate race has not generated much interest and with the distractions of the past week, its hard to say what impact the debate could have, according to Western New England University Political Science professor Tim Vercellotti

The Three Republican candidates participated in a debate in Springfield last month.
