Massachusetts: Feisty campaign season speeding to a close

BOSTON (AP) – A feisty campaign season in Massachusetts is speeding to a close with voters facing a slew of decisions, from picking a president and senator, to deciding the fate of ballot questions and electing members of Congress and the Legislature.

The marquee race is the contest pitting Republican incumbent U.S. Sen. Scott Brown against Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren, the most expensive in Massachusetts history.

Voters will also choose between former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama.

There are controversial questions on the ballot that would legalize medical marijuana and allow physician-assisted suicide.

And in the 4th Congressional District, voters will choose between Democrat Joseph Kennedy III and Republican Sean Bielat. In in the 6th District, Republican Richard Tisei is challenging Democratic Rep. John Tierney.

 Polls are open Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
