U.S. Senate Hopeful Stops In Holyoke

lynchHOLYOKE, Mass. (WGGB) — U.S. Senate candidate Stephen Lynch stopped in western Mass. Monday night.

The congressman visited voters at Brennan’s Place.

Lynch and fellow congressman Ed Markey are vying for the democratic nomination in the special senate election.

A new report shows both congressmen have relied heavily on contributions from political action committees in past campaigns, but in this campaign both have taken a “People’s Pledge” to prevent PACs from running TV advertisements.

“You see all these negative ads and I think it causes people to just turn off and it keeps, it actually suppresses the vote. People get sick of watching that and I want no part of it,” said Lynch.

The primary election is set for April 30th and the general election will be on June 25th.

Congressman Ed Markey will be in Springfield Tuesday afternoon to meet with members of the African American Clergy.
