The six Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate are set to debate for the first time Tuesday night at UMass Lowell.

Warren has separated herself from the pack in early polling, but with the primary scheduled for next September, the race still has a long, long way to go.

We take a look at the rest of the field of candidates competing for a chance to unseat Republican Sen. Scott Brown.
