The six candidates seeking the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts will participate in the first debate among the Democrats who hope to challenge Republican Scott Brown in 2012. Participating will be candidates Tom Conroy; Marisa DeFranco; Alan Khazei; Bob Massie; Herb Robinson and Elizabeth Warren. The debate is being presented through a new initiative of the university’s Center for Public Opinion and the Boston Herald that also includes polling on how Massachusetts voters feel about candidates and critical issues facing the Commonwealth. The UMass Lowell Political Science Club is co-sponsoring the debate which will feature questions by a panel of UMass Lowell student leaders, a university focus group and Twitter followers.

UMass Lowell Chancellor Marty Meehan, who represented Massachusetts’ Fifth District in Congress for 14 years, will serve as the moderator. The debate is free and open to the public. The program will be streamed live by the Boston Herald at www.bostonherald.com and UMass Lowell at www.uml.edu. The public can participate via Twitter with the hashtag, “#UMLdebate.”
