MEDFORD, Mass. – Edward Kennedy's widow has formally endorsed Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley in the race for her late husband's U.S. Senate seat.

Vicki Kennedy threw her support behind Coakley on Thursday at a Kennedy-esque event: A brass band entertained a crowd of senior citizens with "Hello Dolly" and other show tunes.

Kennedy says Coakley would continue the "world-class" representation provided by her late husband.

She was joined at the event by interim Massachusetts Sen. Paul Kirk and the late senator's nephew, former Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy II of Rhode Island.

Coakley faces Republican Scott Brown and independent candidate Joseph L. Kennedy — no relation to the famed political family — in the Jan. 19 election.

Vicki Kennedy had issued a statement of support for Coakley after the primary.
