His healthcare agenda at risk, Obama stumps in Massachusetts

Washington Post, January 18, 2010

Obama urged Massachusetts voters to send state Attorney General Martha Coakley to the U.S. Senate to succeed the late Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA) in a close race that has taken on national implications. An upset victory by state Sen. Scott Brown (R) would give Senate Republicans 41 votes, enough potentially to scuttle the healthcare legislation, the Washington Post reports.
