Warren, Brown Woo Women Voters in Mass. Sen. Race
By STEVE LeBLANC, Associated Press
BOSTON (AP) — Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren and Republican incumbent Sen. Scott Brown are again appealing to all-important women voters with Election Day rapidly approaching.
Warren was joined on the campaign trail Friday by the Senate’s longest serving woman, Maryland Democrat Barbara Mikulski.
The two attended a rally at the University of Massachusetts-Boston with students and supporters before heading to Worcester to visit the YWCA of Central Massachusetts.
Brown met with lawyer and victim advocate Wendy Murphy at his campaign headquarters and spoke about his support for the renewal of the federal Violence Against Women Act.
Brown also faulted Warren for not being a more vocal supporter of women who allege sexual harassment at Harvard Law School, where Warren teaches.
Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick was also hitting the campaign trail to support Warren.
