BOSTON (WWLP) - Democratic Congressmen Stephen Lynch and Edward Markey sparred over health care, abortion and other issues during their first televised debate of the campaign for the state's open U.S. Senate seat.
Markey called his vote in favor of the 2010 Federal Affordable Care Act the proudest of his House career and told Lynch he was "wrong" to vote against the bill.
Lynch said he opposed President Obama's health care plan because it had flaws, including new taxes.
The three Republican candidates, Michael Sullivan, Gabriel Gomez and Daniel Winslow, will take part in a debate Thursday night at 7:00 at City Stage in Springfield.
You can watch the debate on:
22News digital channel 22.2
Comcast channel 288
Charter Channel 260
The debate will also be streamed live on WWLP.com.
