Massachusetts Democrats Plotting Course For 2012 Elections

BOSTON (AP) – Massachusetts Democrats are gathering in Lowell to map out their two top goals for the 2012 elections – reelecting Barack Obama and ousting Scott Brown.

Party Chairman John Walsh said the goals are connected.

The more voters the party can turn out for the Democratic president the better they believe their chances are of denying the Republican senator a full six-year term.

Before they can accomplish that second goal, Democrats have to decide which candidate they think has the best chance of defeating Brown, who remains popular with voters and is sitting on more than $8 million in his campaign account.
