4 candidates to face off in live-broadcast debate - The Boston Globe
The first live-broadcast debate in this year's race for governor is set for May 18, though one of the major candidates, Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey, has declined to participate.
The remaining four candidates --Democrats Chris Gabrieli, Thomas F. Reilly, and Deval L. Patrick, and Independent Christy Mihos -- will square off at 7 p.m. at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government. The debate will focus on jobs, the economy, and cost of living in Massachusetts, all of which have emerged as major issues in the 2006 race.
It will air live on NECN and WBUR-FM 90.9
