4. SOUNDBITE (English) Sen. Elizabeth Warren, (D) Massachusetts:
"Worked hard: Thirty-seven town halls, three debates, crisscrossed the country... the Commonwealth multiple times, top-to-bottom, side-to-side, and got out there and talked about the issues that matter most to the people here in Massachusetts. We talked about health care and student loans, and Social Security. We talked about climate change and gun safety - the things that really touched the lives of everyone in this Commonwealth. (Responding to whether Trump is a factor in the midterm elections despite the fact that he is not on the ballot) For me this is about the people of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. It's about whether or not we're able to protect health care; whether or not our students get a break or get crushed by student loan debt; whether or not the Republicans are going to be able to take back Social Security in order to pay for tax cuts to billionaires and giant corporations. I tried to keep this focused on the issues, not on division and hate. And that's what makes voting such a wonderful moment."

8. SOUNDBITE (English) Rep. Geoff Diehl, (R) Candidate for Senate:
"It's just a nice chance to do what you can for our country, for our state, for my town. And that's...that's what I've always been about. I think for now this is a nice chance to finish a campaign that we worked really hard on, so I'm hoping that the people of Massachusetts do what I did which is vote for me for the Senate (Wife: Yeah!)."

10. SOUNDBITE (English) Rep. Geoff Diehl, (R) Candidate for Senate:
"(Journalist: How are you feeling about your chances this morning?) Well, we are...we actually think that this is gonna be one of those days that's gonna surprise everybody, so we're very excited. (Wife: Yeah) Yup. Alright. Thank you guys, very much, thank you."
Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is hoping to defeat challenger Diehl in an election that will also decide a slew of congressional races, a gubernatorial contest and whether Massachusetts should keep legal protections for transgender people.
If Warren wins, attention will quickly turn to the 2020 election. Warren has promised to take "a hard look" at a possible presidential run.
When asked if the midterms elections were about President Donald Trump as she voted in Cambridge, Warren said her focus was on the issues, and "not on division and hate."
The Democrat said Tuesday after greeting voters and children, buying a few items at an Election Day bake sale, and casting her ballot, that her first priority was the people of Massachusetts and protecting health care, Social Security, and preventing students from being crushed by loan debt.
Warren is being challenged by Republican state Rep. Geoff Diehl and independent candidate Shiva Ayyadurai.
