Today I got a voicemail from Former President Bill Clinton endorsing Attorney General Martha Coakley for Senate. The primary is tomorrow so maybe this will get people to take another look at Martha Coakley if they had already made up their minds for another candidate. Bill Clinton still has a significant amount of political pull so this endorsement, though last minute may sway voters.
The Senate Race has been interesting with the 4 Democratic Candidates of course dominating the coverage, Massachusetts is a democratic state. The debates were critical for me in making my decision which I won’t be revealing. Worcester’s own Congressman Jim McGovern endorsed Coakley’s opponent fellow Congressman Michael Capuano.
Coakley has been considered a front runner with Capuano a distant second. Recent reports indicate that it may be anyone’s game and the outcome will depend on voter turnout. Pagliuca and Khazei have also run strong campaigns in there own rights. So I urge everyone to get out and vote in this important election for the next Senator of Massachusetts.
