The Hiller Instinct: Candidates Make Final Push
Mitt romney (R) Gubernatorial Candidate
"Shannon O'Brien does not support the death penalty. I do."
And Romney knows polls show a majority of state voters do, too. So he thinks he has a winning argument when he points to the serial murders near Washington, D.C.
"Had those tragic crimes occurred in this area, we would not be able to subject these individuals that committed these crimes to the death penalty, and we would instead be sentencing them to a life in prison."
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D)-MA
Ted Kennedy spoke for Shannon O'Brien at an event aimed at reinforcing her TV ads charging Romney puts profits before people. Some of the same Ampad workers who helped Kennedy beat Romney in 1994 want to help O'Brien beat him now.
"I'm here to tell you, you can't trust him. He hasn't come forward to help us one bit and that's all it would have taken."
Randy Johnson, Former Ampad Employee

"To suggest that I'm in any way involved with it is not true. And she knows it's not true."
Everybody knows what is true.
"I guess when a campaign is dead even, which is what most people say the polls are suggesting -- the WHDH poll said that -- why almost anything becomes pivotal."
But nothing will be more pivotal than tomorrow night's debate, the final Romney - O'Brien face-off before the election. It's not a stretch to say this race could be won or lost tomorrow night, because the debate could influence so many undecided voters to decide.
