The race for attorney general in Massachusetts is galvanizing many Democrats. Political veteran Warren Tolman and former assistant attorney general Maura Healey are vying for the party's nomination on Sept. 9. Next Tuesday's winner will face Republican construction attorney John Miller.
A Suffolk University poll last week showed Tolman with a six point lead against Maura Healey (35 to 29 percent), and the two have been duking it out in several heated debates.
- "Bay state political pundits have been complaining about the relatively sleepy nature of the Massachusetts gubernatorial race. But, there is a contest to get the blood going: the primary battle for attorney general."
Correction: An earlier version of this story said there would be a debate on WBUR Wednesday with the attorney general candidates. That debate is among the three gubernatorial candidates.
