A supporter of Democratic US Senate candidate Martha Coakley has acknowledged that he acted too aggressively in an incident Tuesday night in which he jostled a reporter for a conservative magazine who was pursuing Coakley for a comment and the reporter fell to the ground.

“Last evening I was a little too aggressive in trying to help the attorney general get to her car and catch a flight,” Michael Meehan, a veteran Democratic political operative with Massachusetts ties, said in a statement. He said he had called the reporter, John McCormack of the Weekly Standard, this afternoon to apologize.
