Democratic candidates for governor will face off tonight for a debate at Stonehill College, one of several public forums as the Sept. 9 primary election draws near.
The Stonehill event, organized by the institution’s Joseph Martin Institute for Law & Society, will be moderated by Steve Kornacki, host of MSNBC’s Up with Steve Kornacki. It is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and be streamed live on the college’s website.
Don Berwick, Martha Coakley and Steven Grossman have at least four other debates scheduled between now and the primary.
Republican candidates Charlie Baker and Mark Fisher will meet at least three more times. Independent candidates Jeff McCormick Evan Falchuk, and Scott Lively have at least one scheduled debate.
Coakley is leading the field of Democratic candidates, according to the most recent Boston Globe poll of likely primary voters. That survey, released last week, showed the attorney general with the support of 45 percent of those who responded; 21 percent back Grossman, and 10 percent prefer Berwick.
