Massachusetts senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is continuing to introduce herself to the voters of the state, releasing a new ad that both tells the tale of her family history as well as pulls together the threads of the current debate over the economy, taxes and education.
“I grew up in a family hanging on by our fingertips to a place in the middle class. But back then, America invested in kids like me. We had a lot of opportunities. Today, Washington lets big corporations like GE pay nothing — zero — in taxes, while kids are left drowning in debt to get an education.”
The ad, which is expected to run for 2 weeks, is projected by the GOP to cost approximately $770,000.
Warren and Republican Senator Scott Brown have been locked in a tight race, where the slim lead has been switching back and forth between the incumbent and the challenger. Despite the pledge to disallow outside spending in the campaign, it is still expected to be one of the most expensive senate races in history just based on the amount of money each candidate has raised.
