MA: Boston Globe Calls for Inclusive Gubernatorial Debates

From the Boston Globe:
INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE Tim Cahill began his closing statement in Monday’s first gubernatorial debate with a plea to be included – along with Green-Rainbow party candidate Jill Stein – in subsequent debates. Then he and Stein went on to show, with their contributions to the debate on Cape Wind, that they bring thoughtful, distinct perspectives the voters deserve to hear. . . .

Suffolk University, and especially the non-partisan think tank MassINC, deserve credit for producing a well-mannered and substantive debate that hopefully sets the tone for the rest of the campaign. Cahill and Stein both contributed to that substance, and have earned a place on future stages.
