Six Boston Democratic Ward Committees are sponsoring a virtual candidates forum for two Congressional Districts and U.S. Senate on August 12. The candidate forum begins at 5:30 pm, and will be available to the public through Zoom and sponsored by the Democratic Committees of Wards 8, 9, 10, 11, 19, and 20. Tanisha Sullivan, President of the Boston Chapter of the NAACP, will moderate the forum. The forum will include Congressman Stephen Lynch, D-8th, and his Democratic Party challenger Robbie Goldstein, who has positioned himself as less conservative than Lynch. U.S. Senator Ed Markey and his Democratic Party challenger Congressman Joe Kennedy, will also address the forum.
U.S. Senator Ed Markey and his opponent U.S. Congressman Joseph Kennedy III will debate live on Facebook on July 7 with a unique twist to the debate. The Suffolk County Sheriff's Department will host the debate and questions will be posed by the incarcerated population. Congressman Kennedy (MA D-4th) was first elected in 2013, and is trying to unseat his fellow Democrat Markey, who was also elected senator in 2013 after being the Congressman for the 7th District from 1976 to 2013. The forum will be streamed on Facebook Live on Tuesday, July 7th at 10:30 am. Candidates will each appear individually.
Early voting for Massachusetts residents occurred last week and the presidential primary is March 3. Many elected officials have let it be known who they support. Let's review who they're supporting. At-Large City Councilor Michelle Wu was a student of U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren -- so you know the Wu Train is in full support of Warren. Wu is continually canvassing for Warren, went to the Iowa Caucus, and more.
