The three Democratic candidates for governor sat down Wednesday morning for a debate at WBUR, which was moderated by Bob Oakes. Attorney General Martha Coakley, state Treasurer Steve Grossman and former Obama administration health care official and Newton pediatrician, Donald Berwick.

The candidates exchanged views on taxes, casino gambling, gun control, education and health care. They agreed with each other more than they disagreed. But they did clash on some issues.
