Most polls show a close race between Republican Scott Brown and Democrat Martha Coakley. Others have Brown in the lead after a late surge. The race has become a national referendum on health-care reform. Coakley supports it. But brown is pledging to be the 41-st vote against it. Monday, both candidates made their closing arguments to voters. Brown criticized Coakley after she stumped for votes at the Martin Luther King Day breakfast in Boston. Brown was there too, but was not invited to speak. NECN reporter Jennifer Eagan is in Boston with more. There is a third candidate in the race, Independent Joseph Kennedy, who is no relation to the late senator.
