Walsh campaign calls out ‘anonymous, negative’ Connolly attacks

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – As election day inches ever closer, the race for Boston mayor is heating up.

On Friday, State Rep. Marty Walsh's campaign accused his opponent of hiring a polling firm to conduct "push polling" to attack and discredit him.

Councilor John Connolly said he's not going negative and then turned the tables, saying he's been the subject of negative mailers by Walsh supporters. Connolly's campaign said they are just testing messages and won't talk about polling because it's part of their strategy.

"Clearly he's targeting certain neighborhoods in the city to try to discredit me and my record and my campaign, and it's wrong," said Walsh. "I don't condone negative campaigning. I never take part in it and I never will take part in it."

"I don't think there's any negative campaigning taking place and my campaign doesn't participate in any negative campaigning," said Connolly.

The final debate between the two candidates is Tuesday. The election is Nov. 5.
