WESTWOOD -- Three weeks before their showdown in the Democratic primary, congressional challenger Phil Dunkelbarger says incumbent Stephen Lynch is "ducking" a debate.

"This kind of behavior is not something that would be held in high regard in South Boston," Dunkelbarger, a Westwood Democrat, said yesterday. "They like action....Stephen Lynch is ducking."

Dunkelbarger was referring to a candidate forum the League of Women Voters recently tried to schedule for Sept. 7 with Lynch, D-9th, Dunkelbarger and Jack E. Robinson, the lone Republican candidate in the race for the 9th congressional seat.

Lynch’s campaign said yesterday the congressman cannot attend the debate because the U.S. House of Representatives will be in session that day.

Ya just gotta wonder why Mr. Lynch is afraid to debate Phil. It might have something to do with the issues. . . .
