BOSTON (CBS) – Incumbent Congressman John Tierney was widely considered one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the country going into this year’s election. As a result, his own party has offered two serious challengers before he even makes it to the general election in November. Seth Moulton and Marisa DeFranco have both built strong grassroots campaigns over the last few months, and will make next Tuesday’s vote very interesting. Though Congressman Tierney declined the invitation, Moulton and DeFranco join Dan in studio to talk about the race and why each believes they are the best choice for voters. Do you think an incumbent can be defeated in a primary? Would it be smart for Democrats to send a candidate with less baggage into the general election? Does Washington experience still appeal to voters, or do they prefer political outsiders? Tune in to hear the discussion.
