With voters heading to the polls in Massachusetts tomorrow to select U.S. Senate nominees in a special election, Bill Clinton has endorsed Martha Coakley (D) in a robocall used to target Democratic primary voters, the Boston Globe reports.

The Fix: “Clinton’s support is consistent with his recent pattern of rewarding political loyalty — Coakley was an early endorser of then Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential bid. Bill Clinton is the most high profile endorser to make his preference known in the special and his support of Coakley may well be aimed at stifling any last minute momentum for Rep. Mike Capuano who was endorsed by former Massachusetts governor Michael Dukakis and Massachusetts Rep. Ed Markey over the past week.”
