Mass. Gubernatorial Candidates Set To Debate

The Massachusetts candidates for governor are expecting their largest audience yet in their latest televised debate.

Democrat Deval Patrick, Republican Charles Baker, independent Timothy Cahill and Green-Rainbow Party candidate Jill Stein are meeting Tuesday for an hour in a discussion moderated by CNN's John King. The full debate can be heard live on WBUR-FM and seen here, on

The debate is being broadcast live by a media consortium including WGBH-TV, WCVB-TV, New England Cable News, WHDH-TV and WGBH-FM and WBUR-FM. The Boston Globe is also a co-sponsor.

Patrick, who is seeking re-election, debated Baker and Cahill twice last week. Stein was excluded because of low fundraising and poll results.

The most recent poll shows Patrick leading Baker 41 percent to 34 percent, with Cahill at 14 percent and Stein at 4 percent. Six percent were undecided.

The general election is Nov. 2.

This program aired on September 21, 2010. The audio for this program is not available.
