Poll has Warren head-to-head with Brown – Dems prepare for Lowell debate – Protesters occupy downtown parcel

DEM DEBATE: The Democratic candidates for Senate gather in Lowell tomorrow for their first debate (Herald). After this poll, it’s going to be really awkward for everyone on stage to pretend this isn’t all about you-know-who. (Herald).

WE MISS YOU: You won’t see Setti Warren there, since he’s in full-on damage control mode trying to salvage his mayoralty (Globe).

PILE ON: And since Setti’s gone, I guess the Lowell Sun’s Peter Lucas doesn’t think there are enough Democrats in the race and asks ‘why not Marty Meehan?’

CHEAP SHOT: You guys smell anything weird around South Station? I think the Big Dig tunnel vents are broken or something. (Metro)
