Rep. Stephen Lynch campaigns in Western Mass


One of the Democratic candidates for what used to be John Kerry's U.S. Senate seat spent his Saturday in Western Mass.

Rep. Stephen Lynch capped off a day of campaigning with a stop at the John Boyle O'Reilly Club.

His stumping across the Pioneer Valley coincided with a report out Saturday that his opponent in the Democratic primary, Rep. Ed Markey, is currently drawing the most financial support.

But Lynch told CBS 3 his campaign is doing just fine.

"Well, I started out a couple million dollars short of my friend, so that is to be expected," said Lynch. "I will be out-spent, but I will not be out-worked that is for sure. So, I think we have got enough money for a decent campaign and the rest is shoe-leather. That is what we have been trying to do over the past few weeks."

Lynch and Markey will square off in a debate in Springfield on April 18.

The Democratic primary is slated for April 30.
