43. Coakley's campaign claimed she disappeared after the primary bc she had to fund raise. If true,
that is very much the fault of the DNC. The DNC should have made sure that the 60th vote had all the money (and coaching and support from national Dems) she needed. (And I was very much against Coakley in the primary.)

Still, I do think Coakley was just a lousy candidate, all the way around.
