Mass. US Senate hopefuls to meet in 1st debate

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - Democrat Ed Markey and Republican Gabriel Gomez are preparing for their first head-to-head debate of an increasingly contentious campaign for the U.S. Senate.

Markey and Gomez will square off Wednesday in the one-hour debate at the WBZ-TV studios, sponsored by the station and The Boston Globe.

The candidates spent weeks wrangling over the number of and timing of debates. They have also agreed to debate on June 11 in western Massachusetts and on June 18 in Boston.

The race has taken on an increasingly personal tone in recent weeks, with Gomez accusing Markey - a 36-year veteran of the U.S. House - of running "dirty" campaign ads.

The Democrat's campaign suggests that Gomez is hiding information by refusing to release the names of clients he served in private business.
