BOSTON (AP) - Massachusetts provided the blueprint for President Barack Obama's 2010 health care law, but in the state's contentious U.S. Senate race, the debate over the law continues to looms large.
Republican incumbent Scott Brown won the state's special election two years ago by vowing to vote against the law. As he seeks re-election, Brown is pledging to help repeal the law.
Democratic rival Elizabeth Warren is a staunch defender of the law, pointing to what she says are its successes. She says those include the expansion of insurance to millions of Americans and benefits that weren't included in Massachusetts' 2006 health care law.
For both candidates, the fight over the health care law is critical as they try to appeal to key voting groups in the campaign's final weeks.
