Jennifer O'Malley-Dillon, the executive director of the Democratic National Committee, sent over this response to the assembling circular firing squad:

"I am incredibly proud of the work of the DNC, OFA, and State Parties across the country and in MA have done to partner with Martha Coakley and the DSCC in trying to bring this race home--from the very beginning of this year.  And for the next three hours-until the polls close--those same staff and volunteers are going to be giving all they have to try to help get Coakley over the finish line. 

 "When this race is over, I'm certain there will be plenty of time to talk about the extensive efforts the DNC went to on this race but until this race is over, we're going to keep plugging away, voter-by-voter."
