Gomez, Markey to Square Off in First Debate

The U.S. Senate candidates will face each other in a live, televised debate Wednesday.

The Republican and Democratic candidates for the U.S. Senate special election later this month are set to meet in the first of three scheduled debates Wednesday night.

According to an Associated Press article printed in the Boston Herald Monday, Republican businessman Gabriel Gomez of Cohasset and Democratic Congressman Edward Markey of Malden will debate at the WBZ-TV studios Wednesday in a debate sponsored by the TV station and the Boston Globe.

WBZ previously reported the debate will take place and air live from 7-8 p.m. WBZ political analyst Jon Keller will moderate.

According to the Herald, subsequent debates will take place on June 11 in western Massachusetts and June 18 back in Boston. The campaigns reportedly spent weeks "wrangling" over the time and number for the debates.

The election will be held June 25 to fill the seat vacated by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
