State Rep. Daniel Winslow, former U.S. attorney Michael Sullivan, and former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez discussed a wide-range of issues in the hour-long debate at Stonehill College Tuesday night.
The quest to become the "Washington outsider" representing the Republican Party in this year's Massachusetts special senate election was underway at Stonehill College Tuesday night when GOP candidates met in their first primary debate. "Electing either of the Democratic nominees would be a sign of 'surrender' that we have given up," State Representative Daniel B. Winslow (R-Norfolk) said in his closing statement referring to U.S. Congressmen Ed Markey (D-Malden), who represents Winchester, and Stephen Lynch (D-South Boston). Winslow, former US attorney Michael J. Sullivan, and former Navy SEAL Gabriel E.

In a statement, Sen. Scott Brown's camp said it was "not appropriate to go forward with a political debate when a disaster strikes."
Republican Sen. Scott Brown won't show up to Tuesday night's final debate with Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren, citing Hurricane Sandy as the reason. "The Scott Brown campaign today announced that out of concern for the hardship faced by people in the path of Hurricane Sandy that he will not be participating in tomorrow's fourth and final debate," said Brown Communication Director Colin Reed. "It is simply not appropriate to go forward with a political debate when a disaster strikes. The focus for all of us before, during and after the storm needs to be on emergency response and disaster relief, not campaigns and politics." Brown and Warren were scheduled to meet Tuesday night in Boston for a live debate moderated by CNN's John King…

The second debate between U.S. Senate incumbent Scott Brown and Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren is slated for tonight and the meetup promises to be a showdown. A Week of Back and Forth Since the first debate between the two candidates a week ago, Brown's campaign has been pressing Warren on her claim to Native American ancestry. “Professor Warren claimed she was a Native American, a person of color — and as you can see, she is not,” Brown said at the debate, inferring Warren got special treatment from her employers because of her heritage. ”I didn’t get an advantage because of my background,” Warren said. However, Scott's campaign may have pressed the issue too far. A video surfaced this week that reportedly shows Brown staffers …

Friday, September 21, 2012
Republican Sen. Scott Brown faced off against Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren Thursday night in a debate televised by WBZ-TV. The Thursday debate was the first of four planned tilts between the candidates, and it saw disagreement between the two on just about every topic. Polls have seesawed over the last week, with Brown and Warren swapping small leads, as they have throughout the campaign. The debates may provide one or the other an opportunity to change voter minds and swing the election his or her way. Central to Thursday's debate was the focus on taxes, jobs and the economy. "He has said he will defend the top 2 percent and the top 3 percent...and will hold the other 98% of families hostage," Warren said, referencing Brown's …
The two candidates for the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts faced off in their first live debate on Thursday night.
Stark differences came out early and often between U.S. Senate candidates Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown in their first debate, with disagreements on everything from tax policy to job creation to women's rights. Over and over during the Thursday debate, Warren chose to bring up Sen. Brown's voting record, and Brown chose to point out that Warren's plan would raise taxes on everyone and stifle job creation. "He has said he will defend the top 2 percent and the top 3 percent...and will hold the other 98 percent of families hostage," Warren said, referencing Brown's position against extending the Bush-era tax cuts unless it also contained cuts for the country's top earners. Brown countered by noting that Warren's policies would raise …
