Democrat Martha Coakley is counting on union muscle to help her win Tuesday's U.S. Senate election in Massachusetts.

She kicked off the final weekend of campaigning Saturday with a stop at an International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers hall in Boston to encourage a group of canvassers.

Coakley was joined by Sen. Edward Kennedy's widow, Vicki.

Vicki Kennedy, whose husband died in August of brain cancer, said he relied on labor during his own tight race in 1994. She said Coakley needs labor's help to help her get out the vote.

Coakley's in a dead heat with Republican Scott Brown.

Independent Joseph L. Kennedy — who's unrelated to Kennedy's famed political family — is also running.
