Race for Massachusetts AG Heats Up

Politics-Vote BOSTON (AP) — The Democratic race for Massachusetts attorney general is turning out to be one of the state’s most closely watched contests in the Sept. 9 primary.

While candidates Warren Tolman and Maura Healey agree on many topics, they have been scrambling to distinguish themselves to voters.

They hardly seem to differ on issues like the update of the state’s gun laws and a new law tightening security around abortion clinics.

But the two have split on the best way to handle the Market Basket feud, with Tolman saying it’s a time for leadership and Healey saying it’s not the job of the attorney general to settle a business dispute.

The Democratic primary winner will face John Miller, the lone Republican in the race.

Attorney General Martha Coakley is running for governor.
