Senate Race Enters Final Push

This article is more than 11 years old.

The special election to fill the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's U.S. Senate seat is just 15 days away.

The candidates are Democrat Attorney General Martha Coakley, Republican State Sen Scott Brown and third-party candidate Joseph L. Kennedy.

For the most part, it was a pretty quiet contest during the holiday season, but that's likely to change in the final days with debates just around the corner.

For a new year's preview of the last leg of the race, we spoke with political analysts Democrat Dan Payne and Republican Todd Domke.
