Massachusetts voters may have watched two debates this week. On Wednesday, the candidates vying for the 2020 Presidential nomination took to the stage in Nevada. Closer to home, Sen. Ed Markey debated Rep. Joe Kennedy, who is challenging Markey for his US Senate seat. And in other local 2020 election news, Mass. State Rep. Thomas Petrolati became the third western Mass legislator to announce he won’t seek re-election.
