Part of the debate

MARLBOROUGH

Evergreen Solar of Marlborough received some kudos in the debate between Democratic gubernatorial candidates last night. Candidate Deval Patrick called it "exactly the kind of business that we should be cultivating" and bemoaned the fact that it is opening a new plant in Germany, rather than locally.

Patrick, who thinks the state ought to become a leader in alternative energy, is vying with Attorney General Thomas Reilly and Chris Gabrieli in the Sept. 19 primary.

Read more of the exchange -- including Gabrieli's little dig at Patrick about Evergreen -- on the Globe's political blog.
