The three candidates for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate have differing views on high-profile issues, something that was evident last night in their televised debate.

State Representative Dan Winslow sharply questioned former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan's position on a background-check bill being proposed in the U.S. Senate. While Winslow and candidate Gabriel Gomez support the proposed legislation, Sullivan would only say that the bill doesn't address keeping guns from being owned by the mentally ill.
