Gibbs also took a swipe at Brown using the latest Democratic party talking points, and said Obama "sees a pretty clear distinction" between Coakley who he views as a fighter for Massachusetts and "a candidate on the other side who feels comfortable fighting for the insurance industry and big banks."
Asked about Coakley's tanking poll numbers, Gibbs said Obama was "happy to have a campaign on whether you're for the status quo, protecting insurance company profits, bank company profits."
Reporters pressed Gibbs on what it would mean for Obama and his health care agenda should Coakley lose. "I don't think Scott Brown is going to win on Tuesday," was his reply, later adding "We're not on the ballot."
He said Obama thinks it will be a "productive" campaign stop.
A Democratic source tells us the Coakley campaign made the request for Obama to make the stop, and Gibbs said there had been "no plans" for the visit earlier in the week because the president hadn't yet been invited.
