Boston Herald – Woodlief: Markey thrives in Sen. debate

U.S. Rep. Ed Markey has been an ace at deflecting criticism, turning foes’ sour ploys into the sweet wine of success, from the start of his political career

He showed that in Monday’s Boston Herald/UMass Lowell Senate debate, fielding Democratic rival Stephen Lynch’s toughest assaults and flinging them back at him.

It was a masterful evening for Markey in what may have been Lynch’s best chance to turn the tide, with the primary only three weeks away.
