Martha Coakley, the Massachusetts Democratic candidate for U.S. Senator, has indicated that she favors, and may insist on, including Libertarian Joe Kennedy in candidate debates.
Kennedy will officially appear as an independent on the ballot. He is not related to the late Senator Edward Kennedy. The special election will be held on January 19, 2010.
The Boston Globe recently reported on Coakley’s statements.
