Last night Donoghue and Doherty, candidates for the 1st Middlesex Senate District, debated at Nashoba High School. Doherty has been running an exceptionally negative campaign. Doherty is finally answering him aggressively, and sparks really flew at this debate.
The debate starts at about 14:30.
In her opening statement Donoghue pointed out how Doherty has been running a negative campaign. The debate gets aggressive at 24:00 when the moderator asks about Doherty’s negative attacks. Donoghue calls characterized Doherty’s attacks:
I think illegal is illegal and I would enforce the law. He used it to try to distort my position today and that is unfair. It was just a cheap shot.
