Warren Heads to General Election

Elizabeth Warren made Democratic Party history Saturday when she advanced to a November challenge against Scott Brown without facing a primary. She’s the first candidate ever to get the delegates necessary to do so, winning 96 percent of the vote. Warren will challenge incumbent Sen. Scott Brown, whom she characterized in her convention remarks as “a Wall Street Republican, a Big Oil Republican, a Mitt Romney Republican.” The most recent polls show that Warren, a former Harvard professor, has a fight ahead of her. In one poll conducted by The Boston Globe and the University of New Hampshire, Brown looked likely to secure 39 percent of the vote and Warren 37 percent.
