Coakley criss-crosses state in hopes of last minute votes

There was no sign of slowing down on the final day of Democratic candidate Martha Coakley’s campaign for governor.

She started by voting in Medford before heading to Springfield then coming back east to Worcester and ending her day in Boston where she hopes to find out she won the race against her Republican opponent Charlie Baker.

“A lot of rallies a lot of speeches, it’s called campaignitis I think, but other than my voice I feel terrific,” Coakley said.

The 61-year-old attorney general stumped for last minute votes at a pizza place in East Boston with the Democratic mayor of Boston.

“We have hundreds of people on the street today for Martha and for the ticket and there seems to be good energy out there and we’re going to work right until 8 p.m.,” Mayor Marty Walsh said.

If successful Coakley would be the first woman to be elected Massachusetts governor.

“If you review her record as the Attorney General it’s honestly been fights that need to be fought,” Coakley volunteer Chris Cataldo said.

Supporters say they like that Coakley fought for gay marriage and against the Defense of Marriage Act.

“She stands up for everything Boston needs right now. Boston needs unity,” Coakley supporter Antonio Arevalo said.

Coakley isn’t the first Attorney General to try and make the jump to Governor of Massachusetts in the past several decades, but no one in the past has been successful.
