Elizabeth Warren will run against Republican Sen. Scott Brown in Massachusetts
WASHINGTON (AP) ' Consumer advocate Elizabeth Warren launches her bid for the Democratic nomination for Massachusetts senator Wednesday, promising to advocate for middle-class families squeezed by big corporations. If she wins, Warren hopes to unseat incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown.
Warren is to begin her campaign Wednesday morning by greeting Boston commuters before traveling to cities around the state to meet voters.
Warren will join a crowded primary field but was heavily courted to join the race. Democrats have been seeking a major challenger to regain the seat long held by the late Sen. Edward Kennedy. They've made Brown a top target in the blue state, in the hopes of keeping their narrow Senate majority.
