Hundreds of people turned out to hear Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren at a Boston University rally on Saturday.

Warren shared the stage with Gov. Deval Patrick and Rep. Michael Capuano, who represents parts of Boston, Cambridge and Somerville.

Capuano emphasized Boston's importance in Warren's race against Sen. Scott Brown. He told the crowd that if Warren wins the city with at least 60 percent of the vote, some people will say she did well.

"But for those of us who pay attention, that's the road to a defeat. We need to walk out of this neighborhood with 65, 70, 75 percent of the vote, like we always do," Capuano said.

In any campaign, local politicians always want to see more of the candidate. Some Boston politicians have expressed frustration that Warren has not been campaigning enough in the city.

This program aired on September 15, 2012. The audio for this program is not available.
