On Week-in-Review we'll cover the local and national political climate. Ten days ahead of midterm elections, tense, divisive, even violent moments have punctuated the week.

This week in debates:

  • Mass. Attorney General | Democratic incumbent Maura Healey vs. Republican attorney Jay McMahon.
  • U.S. Senate | Democrat Elizabeth Warren vs. her Republican challenger Geoff Diehl.
  • Mass. Secretary of State | Democrat Bill Galvin vs. Republican security director Anthony Amore.
  • Ballot Question 1 | Nancy Gaden, chief nursing officer at Boston Medical Center, opposes mandated nurse-to-patient ratios vs. Donna Kelly Williams, president of the Massachusetts Nurses Association. She supports the measure.
