Elizabeth Warren Senate Run A Go

Elizabeth Warren Senate Run A Go

 

Former White House adviser and champion of the middle class Elizabeth Warren will formally launch her campaign for U.S. Senate tomorrow, challenging Republican incumbent Scott Brown.

Brown was elected to the Senate in a special election in January 2010 following the death of Senator Ted Kennedy. Democrats have targeted the seat, and despite Brown’s relative popularity in the state, a recent survey showed Brown just barely edging Warren by 44%-35% in a state expected to vote Democratic by a large margin in the presidential race.

Warren’s presence on the ticket will likely energize progressive voters who were disappointed she was not chosen to head the Consumer Protection Bureau she created and is just the kind of news needed on a day when the Census Bureau reports a spike in poverty rates and the uninsured and when leading candidates for the Republican nomination campaign on the platform of squeezing the poor and working class even more than they are already doing.

Elizabeth Warren is one kickass lady. There isn't a male member of Congress with more cojones than she. She will make a heck of a senator. A lot like Hillary, but maybe a bit more in-your-face.

This makes wish I still lived in Massachusetts so I could vote for her.Yes,Jeffery W.,9 points down may look pretty big against Brown's money.But but don't let Elizabeth Warren's meek appearence fool you. She's a real fighter,Brown's Wall Street backers are probably scared shitless of her,and she ain't yet begun to fight! So it may be you,Jeffery who ends up disapointed in this case. Time will tell.

She was just on the Rachel Maddow show. She's up against Brown's millions in campaign contributions, but I wish her alot of luck. She certainly has the drive and dedication we need.

Warren and smart and fierce and pro-consumer.

The regressive Republican Party of No is obstructionist, mean-spirited, thuggish, religiously fanatical, scientifically ignorant, corrupt, hypocritical, xenophobic, racist, sexist, homophobic, evolution and global warming denying, oily, anti-environment, anti-consumer, anti-choice, anti-education, union busting, Medicare and Social Security slashing, fiscally irresponsible, authoritarian, selfish, greedy, out-of-touch, lacking compassion, warmongering, and otherwise dangerous.

NEVER vote for Republicans.

I hope she's successful, and goes on to make this country a better place for all of us. I am behind her, 100%.

This is quite amazing and it just goes to show what can be done. But the loop holes are rather large…
