BOSTON (CBS) – Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate spent the day honing their messages to convince voters they are the most electable.
Former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan, State Representative Dan Winslow and investment manager Gabriel Gomez will face-off in the WBZ-TV studios at 7p.m. with moderator Jon Keller.
With less than three weeks before the April 30th primary, the candidates are looking for more face time with voters.
The debate gives them an opportunity to speak to a wider audience and get voters to focus on the race and their differences.
“The debate tonight will get people paying attention and talking about the race,” said Michael Sullivan who believes he has the conservative credentials.
But Winslow and Gomez say they are the candidates who can bring Republicans to the polls.
“I’m the only candidate with solutions on the table to fix America and break the gridlock,” said Winslow who picked up a key endorsement from the Boston Herald newspaper which called him a “problem solver.”
But Gomez counters that with his private sector experience he says he understands “how the policies coming from DC affect companies now who are not hiring and investing in themselves.”
Today is the last day for voters to register for the primary.
