Warren Hints at Senate Run

Elizabeth Warren, the interim director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, wrote a post on a Democratic Party website, which sent the clearest signal yet that she will run for senate. While she did not explicitly say in the post that she will run for Senator Scott Brown’s seat in Massachusetts, the post used language typical of a campaign kickoff. In the post, Warren wrote, “It is time for me to think hard about what role I can play next to help rebuild a middle class that has been hacked at, chipped at, and pulled at for more than a generation—and that is under greater strain every day.” She also asked Massachusetts residents to suggest ideas “about how we can fix what all of us—regardless of party—know is a badly broken political system.”
