WORCESTER — Just as the presidential election may turn on Ohio, Florida, and other battleground states, the Massachusetts Senate race has its own crucial communities that Senator Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren will be counting on to help them roll to victory on Tuesday.
After spending about $70 million combined to influence voters, Brown and Warren made frantic final appeals to a few of those key areas Monday, hugging babies and holding rallies in places such as Framingham, Worcester, and Fall River.
Brown, fighting what he characterized as a determined Democratic machine, was pushing to win big in towns along Interstate 495 such as North Attleborough and Marlborough, while minimizing losses in urban centers such as Boston.
Warren was working to win big in Boston and Worcester, while trying to stay competitive in the conservative towns surrounding Springfield and New Bedford, where Brown rolled up large margins in the 2010 special election.
Brown’s travels on his final day of campaigning were an ode to suburbs and blue-collar cities.
