Sen. Warren, GOP’s Diehl clash in final debate of campaign
BOSTON (AP) — Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and her Republican challenger, state Rep. Geoff Diehl, faced off Tuesday in their final campaign debate, challenging each other on everything from gun laws to the GOP-led tax cut.
Warren tried to tie Diehl to the policies of President Donald Trump, who remains unpopular in Massachusetts. She said he failed to push back at key moments, including when Trump launched his presidential campaign by calling Mexicans rapists and murderers.
Diehl says Warren has turned her back on Massachusetts by saying she would take a hard look at running for president in 2020 after the November election. Diehl, who co-chaired Trump’s 2016 Massachusetts presidential campaign, said his goal is to represent Massachusetts in the Senate for the next six years.
Election Day is Nov. 6.
