Republican looks to pull off huge upset in Mass.

What happens at the polls tomorrow in Massachusetts could affect the entire nation and President Obama's future domestic agenda. That's why he was in Boston yesterday, trying to recapture the energy from his 2008 campaign.

Voters will go to the polls to choose between Democratic state Attorney General Martha Coakley and Republican state Senator Scott Brown. They're fighting for a seat Senator Ted Kennedy held for 46 years.

And there is no guarantee, even in New England, which is known as the bluest of the blue, that a Democrat will fill it. Our Jim Acosta reports on this critical race.

    Seems like the people of Massachusetts are not really excited about living under a democrat controlled bankrupt and socolist nation.

    America is depending on the voters of Mass to save our way of life.
    This is a second TEA PARTY that will mean a significant change to all Americans. I find it difficult to believe obama and pelosi lied so profically to voters about their plans for "HOPE and CHANGE." Clearly, this is not what we all planned on. The White House is full of people who want to ruin our way of life.
    It is incredible how the Democrats continue to spin lies about the obvious. Anyone paying attention knows better!!!
    The only change obama's actions will bring about is a Republican revolution to take back control of the White House and Congress.
