BREAKING: Elizabeth Warren files exploratory committee
I wanted to share this note from our EMILY's List President, Stephanie Schriock about consumer advocate Elizabeth Warren. Elizabeth has made some exciting news in the Bay State. Read Stephanie's report:
I've got some incredible news for you. Just yesterday, consumer advocate Elizabeth Warren filed an exploratory committee for the United States Senate in Massachusetts. Elizabeth is a champion for working women and men, taking on credit card companies and fighting back against predatory lending practices.
You and I both know what's at stake here -- holding our razor thin majority in the Senate, taking back a seat from the GOP -- and of course, sending a great voice for everyday Americans to the Senate.
If we're going to beat Scott Brown in 2012 (and I don't know about you, but I really want to send him packing), we're going to need a candidate who understands the real struggles that working families are facing in Massachusetts. Elizabeth has the chops to do it. She's a tireless advocate for consumer rights, and she fought for and created a new team in government to protect families from corporate abuse. I have no doubt she'll bring that same tenacity to the U.S. Senate.
Elizabeth is poised to make a run in this critical race, and she's just the candidate to take on Scott Brown, a bait-and-switch tea-partying Republican whose pockets are lined with millions.
Thank you for all you do.
