6 Mass Democrats facing off in first Senate debate

Posted by jcashman

BOSTON (AP) — The six Massachusetts Democratic candidates for the U.S. Senate seat held by Republican Scott Brown are set to face off in their first debate.

Tuesday’s debate will be the first big test for Harvard law professor and consumer advocate Elizabeth Warren who was the clear front runner in a recent poll.

Warren will share the stage at the University of Lowell with City Year youth program co-founder Alan Khazei; immigration attorney Marisa DeFranco; state Rep. Tom Conroy; Newton resident Herb Robinson; and Robert Massie, who unsuccessfully ran for lieutenant governor in 1994.

The debate will give the other candidates a chance to try to blunt Warren’s momentum.

Democrats are eager to pick the strongest candidates to defeat Brown who won a special election for the Senate seat held by the late Democratic Sen. Edward Kennedy.
