WGBH will host a mayoral debate tonight, on both Channel 2 and 89.7 FM.
US Rep. Mike Capuano endorsed Walsh yesterday:
Marty is one of the few people that I have ever met that I would cross over broken glass to help. I don't do this very often because I think members of Congress should use their endorsement and their support very sparingly. [Marty Walsh] will stand up for people – he'll stand up for human rights, civil liberties. He'll stand up for education. He'll stand up for housing needs and do it with strength, with integrity, and directness.
In recent days, Walsh has picked up endorsements from most of the city's minority elected officials (although not Councilor Ayanna Pressley), but Connolly showed he has some black friends, too. Those supporters include Rev. Miniard Culpepper, Pleasant Hill Baptist Church and Rev. William E. Dickerson, Greater Love Tabernacle.
CommonWealth sets out some questions on racial and income inequality for the next mayor.
