BOSTON (AP) -- Both candidates in Massachusetts U.S. Senate race are touting new endorsements.
Democrat Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday picked up the backing of President Barack Obama, who said Warren will be "a strong, tireless and determined advocate for the people of Massachusetts.
The Democratic president also noted the Harvard Law School professor's role in creating a federal consumer watchdog agency.
Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown won the support of the union representing Massachusetts State Police troopers and a national organization representing state police officers.
The endorsements are the latest in a string for Brown from law enforcement groups.
Also Tuesday Warren met with Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University law student whose fight for insurance access to contraception drew attention earlier this year.
The appearance with Fluke came as both candidates ramped up their appeals to women voters.
