(NECN) - Two weeks from Tuesday, voters will get their first chance to weigh in on who will become the next mayor of Boston.

Ahead of that primary, the only televised forum featuring all of the candidates for mayor was seen here on NECN.

The candidates gathered at the Modern Theatre for 90 minutes of lively debate along with our partners, the Boston Herald and Suffolk University.

Peter Ubertaccio, political analyst from Stonehill College, joined NECN to offer his insight.
Ubertaccio said that with twelve candidates and limited time, it can be difficult to stand out.

“You only get a few seconds to say the things you want to say,” said Ubertaccio.

Although nothing happened to drastically change the mayoral race, Ubertaccio said no one failed either.

“I don’t think anyone really failed. Again, the format didn’t allow for failure.”
