BOSTON (AP) — Congressman Edward Markey is proposing a debate schedule for the Democratic U.S. Senate primary which he said would include two general debates and four issue-specific debates.

Markey said Friday the two general debates should be held in Springfield and Boston while the four issue debates should be held at other locations.

Markey’s Democratic rival — fellow U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch — has also called for six debates in the primary.

Lynch has said the debates should take place in Lowell, Boston, Springfield, Worcester, Pittsfield, and Fall River or New Bedford.

Markey said the issue debates should focus on topics like education, jobs and the economy, public safety and national security, and equal opportunity.

The Democratic and Republican primaries are scheduled for April 30. The election takes place June 25.
