Mass. Senate candidates tout endorsements
BOSTON (AP) -- Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has released an endorsement statement from President Barack Obama as the campaign heads into its final three-week stretch.
Obama called Warren a "strong, tireless and determined advocate for the people of Massachusetts," in the statement issued Tuesday. Obama noted the Harvard Law School professor's role in creating a new federal consumer watchdog agency in Washington.
Warren was also scheduled to campaign on Tuesday with Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University law student whose fight for insurance access to contraception drew attention earlier this year when Republicans denied her a chance to testify at a congressional hearing.
Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, meanwhile, was set to pick up the endorsements of the union representing Massachusetts State Police troopers and a national organization representing state police officers.
