As the two Boston mayoral candidates try to sway voters in the last four weeks before the election, the gubernatorial candidates are laying the groundwork.

As part of our series of conversations with the candidates, Attorney General Martha Coakley takes questions and lays out her vision for the state.

Three years ago, she lost her bid for the U.S. Senate against Scott Brown. But days later she was back on the campaign trail and overwhelmingly won reelection as the attorney general. She has a breadth of prosecutorial experience as the head of the child abuse protection unit in the Middlesex district attorney's office and as the district attorney herself.

Listen to all of our conversations with the gubernatorial candidates.


Martha Coakley, Massachusetts Attorney General and Democratic candidate for governor


Radio Boston Republican Charlie Baker: "You need to focus on where you want to go. What's your path? What's your vision? Where do you want to take the state? And that's why this time, I'm going to focus a lot more on the fact that I think we can do better. I think we should be great."

Radio Boston Democratic State Treasurer Stephen Grossman: "I'm running for Governor because I believe the people of Massachusetts want proven leadership that will leave no one behind, no one out, in a way that empowers them."
