BOSTON (WWLP) - It was their last chance to meet each other in a public forum before next week's special U.S. Senate election.
Democrat Edward Markey and Republican Gabriel Gomez clashed in their third and final debate Tuesday night in Boston.
They sounded familiar themes, with Gomez saying Markey's been in Congress too long, and Markey painting Gomez as a protect-the-rich Republican.
According to Markey, "He says the Wall Street reforms are too tough, but we know what happens when Wall Street does not have a cop on the beat. Mr. Gomez says that he could cut Social Security for seniors in our country. I don't think we should be doing that."
Gomez said, "You could have reformed Social Security and Medicare, and you had 37 years to do that. What makes you think that over the next 17 months, or the next 37 years, you'll be able to do something you haven't done in 37 years?"
