Proven Progressives 2012: Elizabeth Warren
On almost every issue that comes before the Senate, the special interests with big wallets, legions of lobbyists, and SuperPAC checks are working overtime to drown out the voice of everyday, working Americans.
That’s why I need your help sending Proven Progressives to the Senate who will stand with me in fighting to help middle class families and small businesses.
I'm thrilled that my friend Elizabeth Warren is running for Ted Kennedy's old seat in Massachusetts. A proven and powerful progressive, Elizabeth was a critical partner in our uphill fight to create the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. She’s been a strong voice focused on holding Wall Street accountable and making sure our economy works for the middle class.
Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be growing the Proven Progressives slate. And in November, with your help, we’ll have a half-dozen more strong voices for America’s families in the U.S. Senate.
We need more Senators who understand what it’s like to scrimp and save for college or a vacation, who know the stress of caring for an aging parent while trying to raise their kids, who can relate to people worrying about getting laid off.
To get our country back on track, we need more Senators with our experiences and our values.
Let’s start today by helping Elizabeth Warren knock off tea party darling Scott Brown. He’s got over $12 million in his campaign coffers already - more than twice what Elizabeth has in the bank - and she needs people power to compete.
