LOWELL, Mass. (AP) - The two Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate are meeting for a debate at the University of Massachusetts Lowell.
A panel of UMass Lowell students will question U.S. Reps. Edward Markey and Stephen Lynch during Monday night's debate, moderated by media entrepreneur and reporter Jaclyn Cashman.
The debate is sponsored UMass Lowell's Center for Public Opinion and the Boston Herald.
The public is invited on a first-come, first-seated basis and can submit questions for the candidates via Twitter.
Lynch and Markey are vying for the Senate seat vacated when John Kerry became Secretary of State.
Three Republicans are also running.
The primaries are scheduled for April 30 and the general election is June 25.
