The widow of late Senator Edward M. Kennedy makes an impassioned plea for Martha Coakley in an advertisement released today, urging voters to allow the Democrat to complete her husband's unfinished work.
"Tuesday's election is to fill the term my husband didn't have a chance to complete," Vicki Kennedy says. "But it's not the Kennedy seat. It's the peoples' seat."
But Vicki Kennedy adds her own twist, asking voters to remember, "the mother trying to make ends meet. The father trying to find a job."
"My husband fought for them. And so does Martha Coakley,Ē Vicki Kennedy says. "Cracking down on Wall Street and insurance company abuses. Fighting for working families.
"Thatís what Martha Coakley stands for, and Iím proud to stand with her."
