The Special U.S. Senate Election’s Final Debate
The final debate in the special U.S. Senate election took place last night, and while some of you may be ready to put this whole thing behind you, many of you were likely tuning into this race for the very first time. For those of you who did, it was a fiery night indeed, but — with election day just one week away, and with the most recent poll showing Democratic Congressman Ed Markey 13 points ahead of Republican Gabriel Gomez — the real question is, was it game-changing?

WBUR, “With just a week left in the Massachusetts U.S. Senate special election, Democrat Edward Markey and Republican Gabriel Gomez broke little new ground in their third and final televised debate Tuesday night.”
