|Marshfield - In August when the gubernatorial race started to heat up, Democratic Governor Deval Patrick on WATD called for one issue-driven debate per week, from Labor Day until Election Day; WATD started making the calls, and invited all the candidates.
Democratic Governor Deval Patrick and Republican Charlie Baker, who were contacted numerous times, each ignored the request or never got back to WATD-FM.
Green-Rainbow Party candidate Jill Stein was the only one to accept the invite, and came to WATD’s studios on Wednesday night. Stein is a physician and a 1979 graduate of Harvard Medical School.
