GoLocalWorcester | News | Women Voters Integral in Electing Next MA Governor

With women becoming an increasingly important part of the political landscape both on the ballot and as a voting base political candidates are now more than ever attempting to appeal to women's issues. While job creation is certainly an important selling point for both Democrat Martha Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker, both candidates have been spending much time to push their agendas on a variety of women's issues in hopes that they can sway the women of Massachusetts to vote for them in November.

Elizabeth Warren the message machine

The freshman Massachusetts Democratic senator has been everywhere the past few months, appearing on an impressive list of Sunday shows and cable news programs, chatting up late night talk show hosts and crisscrossing the country on a book tour to promote her latest biography, "A Fighting Chance." But if you thought the media blitz may have loosened up the popular liberal - famous on Capitol Hill for her strictly-on-message persona and her aversion to making small talk with the D.C. press corps - think again.

After Brown wins GOP primary, Shaheen on offensive

U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen wasted no time contrasting Republican Scott Brown's recent arrival in New Hampshire to her deep connections and decades of service, running ads against him hours before he won the Republican nomination.
