Coakley And Husband Discuss Motivation During Long Campaign

Download Audio

WBUR's series of conversations with the Massachusetts gubernatorial candidates concludes Friday with a visit with the Democratic candidate.

WBUR's Bob Oakes sat down with Attorney General Martha Coakley and her husband, Tom O'Connor, at their home in Medford. They spoke just after a WBUR poll put Coakley just one point behind Baker, but a new Boston Globe poll shows Baker with a 9-point lead.

They invited Oakes to join them at a dining room table they say has not gotten much use in the past 14 months. Hear the full Morning Edition interview in the audio player above.

This segment aired on October 24, 2014.
