In debate, Lynch hits Markey over national security votes

Grows animated as primary approaches

Representative Stephen F. Lynch on Monday used the first US Senate debate since the Boston Marathon bombings to aggressively challenge Representative Edward J. Markey’s vote against forming the joint homeland security task force, which responded to the attacks, and his opposition to other key security measures.

Markedly more animated than in his past debate performances, Lynch repeatedly sought to depict Markey, the frontrunner in next Tuesday’s Democratic primary, as inattentive to the threat of terrorism.
