Markey, Gomez Heading into Final Campaign Stretch

BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts’s special U.S. Senate election is heading into its final stretch after Republican Gabriel Gomez and Democratic U.S. Rep. Edward Markey engaged in some testy exchanges during their final debate.

One of Tuesday’s sharpest confrontations came on the question of term limits.

Gomez said he told veteran Republican Sen. John McCain, who campaigned for Gomez last month, that he should leave the Senate at the end of his term.

When Markey challenged Gomez, saying he did not tell McCain that this should be his last term, Gomez said that conversation “absolutely did happen.”

The two also sparred on gun control, taxes and Markey’s record in Congress and Gomez’s background in business.

The WGBH-TV debate, sponsored by a Boston media consortium, came less than one week before the June 25 election.

    Either Gomez is lieing, or McCain is lieing. Either way Gomer is a jerk with no proven leadership or experience, and Markey has a perfect track record in that he is the kind of man I want in office representing me. All his votes were just as I would have voted.
