Scott Brown Takes On Rival U.S. Senate Candidates in Radio and Television Debates

State Senator and U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown joined Democrat Martha Coakley and independent Joseph L. Kennedy in a pair of debates over the past week. In case you missed it, be sure to check out the debate that took place on WBZ Radio's NightSide with Dan Rea on December 21 and the debate moderated by WBZ-TV political analyst Jon Keller, which was taped December 22 but broadcast yesterday morning.

The candidates have at least three more debates scheduled between now and the January 19 special election. In addition to a January 5 radio debate on WTKK-FM (96.9), Brown, Coakley and Kennedy will meet again on January 8 for a regional debate that will run on Springfield public television station WGBY. On January 11, they will gather at the University of Massachusetts in Boston for a debate hosted by the Edward M. Kennedy Institute. That debate will be broadcast live on several local TV and radio stations.

The best voter is an informed voter. Be sure to check out the debates to learn where the candidates stand on the issues that matter to you, but more importantly, don't forget to vote in this historic special election on January 19.
