Newsom spreads Democrat’s message in U.S. Senate race 

Democrats across the nation are pulling out the rolodexes to drum up support for Mass. Attorney General Martha Coakley’s race for U.S. Senate, and Mayor Gavin Newsom got in on the act this week as well.

Coakley and Republican Scott Brown are in a dead heat heading into Tuesday's election to replace the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, despite the state's long Democratic tradition.

In a message sent Friday, Newsom forwarded a letter from Kennedy’s widow, Vicki Kennedy:

"This Tuesday, there is a special election to fill Senator Kennedy’s Senate seat in Massachusetts. Following Senator Kennedy is no easy task, but I know that Martha Coakley will do everything she can to protect his legacy, starting with passage of the health care bill."

As Republicans across the nation pour money into this election, there is a good chance that Martha’s opponent can win in an upset. Without Martha Coakley in the Senate, health care for millions of Americans is in peril.
