BOSTON (AP)- Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Stephen Lynch is criticizing automated phone calls that apparently refer to the Marathon bombings and urge voters to support him in Tuesday's primary.
A Lynch campaign spokesman said the "robocalls" were made by an outside group.
The official said Lynch didn't know about calls and doesn't agree with the content. He's asked the group to immediately stop the calls.
Campaign officials said they were not sure what group was behind the calls, which apparently also refer to the need to have a working man in the Senate.
The caller apparently says the calls are being brought to voters "by the 99 percent."
Lynch is facing off against fellow Congressmen Edward Markey in the April 30 Democratic primary.
Daniel Winslow, Gabriel Gomez and Michael Sullivan are squaring off on the Republican side.
