We here at Winning Progressive were very excited yesterday to hear that Elizabeth Warren had announced her candidacy to be the next US Senator from Massachusetts. Ms. Warren has long fought for working people and the types of financial and bankruptcy law reforms that can help save America’s middle class. As Ms. Warren has argued for years, vast portions of the American middle class are being squeezed by unfettered financial service companies focused that have used all sorts of unscrupulous tactics to maximize profits. Her work to create the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which is charged with cracking down on unscrupulous financial services companies by enforcing a wide array of consumer protections, is critical to taking on that middle class squeeze.
We fully expect Ms. Warren to bring this same eagerness to fight for the middle class to the U.S. Senate when she unseats GOP Senator Scott Brown who slipped into office during a low-turnout special election. And Ms. Warren’s campaign announcement video, which is pasted below, shows that she will live up to those expectations. Please watch the announcement video, and then help make sure that Elizabeth Warren is the next US Senator from Massachusetts by:
* sharing this post and the announcement video with your family, friends, and colleagues
* Signing up and/or donating at the campaign website
* If you live in Massachusetts, writing a letter to your local newspaper editor in support of Ms. Warren’s candidacy
