Lynch calls for 6 debates in Dem. Senate primary

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch is calling for at least six debates across the state with fellow Democratic Congressman Edward Markey.

Lynch and Markey are both vying for the Democratic nomination in the race to fill John Kerry's former U.S. Senate seat.

Lynch said the debates should take place in Lowell, Boston, Springfield, Worcester, Pittsfield, and Fall River or New Bedford.

Markey has so far been mum about how many debates he'd like to see.

The primary is scheduled for April 30. The election in June 25.

Several Republicans have said they are weighing running for the seat but none have confirmed as yet.

Marisa DeFranco, who ran in last year's Senate race until she failed to make the Democratic ballot, is also considering entering the special election on the Democratic side.
