CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) - It's just four days until election day and candidates in one of the most watched state senate races in the country are making a push for votes in Western Massachusetts.
Independent voter and mom of three children, Jessica Hebert, came to see Senator Scott Brown speak at the Munich Haus in Chicopee.
She is looking to hear some bipartisan ideas that will brighten the future for her children.
"People that are out of work and looking for jobs, unemployment. That college won't cost a ton of money, that they'll be able to go to college and have opportunities," said Hebert.
Fifty-three percent of registered voters in Massachusetts are independent.
Many of them still haven't made up their minds.
But no matter the party affiliation, voters 22News spoke with said they want politicians who will work together in Washington.
"I think it's a big problem with government today. Either they vote Democratic or Republican, instead of for the people," said Rick Caputo who is voting for Senator Brown.
Former Democratic Springfield Mayor Charlie Ryan crossed party lines when he endorsed Senator Brown, but says, that's the way it should be.
"It's not necessary to do it the old way. You look for the best man, the best woman, the one who has the courage to do that difficult thing. The easiest thing is for Democrats to get on one side and yell at Republicans. The hard thing is to make this country move forward, to solve some of these tremendous problems," said Ryan.
