Scott Brown Answers Coakley Attack Ads — Coakley Scrambling For Obama Visit
Republican Scott Brown released a web ad to counter the recent attacks by Democrat Martha Coakley.
“Her attack ads are wrong and go too far.”
Meanwhile, Democrat Martha “Fenway” Coakley is scrambling to get President Barack Obama to come to Massachusetts this weekend to campaign for her.
She is in a virtual tie with Republican Scott Brown to fill the seat held by Senator Teddy Kennedy. On Tuesday she held a fundraiser with several top health care lobbyists in DC to help her raise some quick cash for her struggling campaign.
FOX News reported:
Republican Senate candidate Scott Brown issued a stern warning to President Obama, cautioning him to “stay away” from Massachusetts as he battles Democratic rival Martha Coakley in a heated race, the Boston Herald reported.
“He should stay away and let Martha and I discuss the issues one on one,” Brown told the Herald. “The machine is coming out of the woodwork to get her elected. They’re bringing in outsiders, and we don’t need them.”
Polls indicate Brown, a state senator, and Coakley, Massachusetts’ Attorney General, are locked in a virtual tie to fill the late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat. Coakley’s campaign is now scrambling for a last-minute boost from Obama before Tuesday’s election, the newspaper reported.
Coakley told the Herald on Wednesday that she hasn’t heard from the White House and would welcome any public support from Obama.
“I welcome his support, but we’ve got a lot of support here in Massachusetts (and) I think he’s got a lot on his plate in Washington,” she told the paper.
