Murray says Mass. race shows voters worried
WASHINGTON -- The election of a Republican senator in Massachusetts shows that voters are worried about jobs and the economy, but is not cause for alarm among Democrats, Sen. Patty Murray said Wednesday.

Murray, who is seeking a fourth term this fall, said the message from Massachusetts "should not be taken lightly," but added that it reinforces what she has long been saying about the need to increase job training and boost the economy.

"In general I would say it shows what a lot of us already know: that people are feeling unstable and worried about the economy and their jobs and their capability to provide for their families," Murray told reporters on a conference call.

The election results show the importance of "getting people the kind of training they need to do the jobs that are out there for our state and our country," she said.
