Elizabeth Warren’s pre-campaign for the United States Senate seemed to enter a new phase yesterday. Previously, she’s attended a bunch of invitation-only, off the record house parties that were closed to the media. Yesterday she visited the Boston Globe which has a story by Frank Phillips and Noah Bierman and a column by Brian McGrory who, despite his signature cynicism, was clearly impressed by Warren, calling her a “New kind of contender.” In both the article and the column, the central theme of Warren’s campaign was made clear. Here’s what she said:
“I came out of a hardworking, middle-class family,’’ she said. “I came from an America that created opportunities for people like me, and I now see an America where the government works for people who already have money and power.’’
If Warren does decide to run and if she can overcome the efforts of the right to drown out her message with distracting nonsense, then she clearly could be a serious threat to incumbent Scott Brown.
