BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts Sen. Edward Markey and his challenger, Rep. Joe Kennedy III, clashed during their final televised debate of the increasingly rancorous Democratic senate primary election Tuesday.

The debate broadcast on WCVB-TV came just days ahead of when in-person early voting is set to begin, and as mail-in ballots are already being sent to voters who requested them.

The debate saw both candidates sharpening their elbows during their last live televised chance to make an impression on voters. Kennedy again criticized Markey for failing to respond to the calls of two fathers who came to him for help.
