NEW: Obama Endorses Warren for Senate

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

 

 

Though it seemed a foregone conclusion, President Barack Obama formally endorsed Democratic hopeful Elizabeth Warren in her efforts to unseat Republican Senator Scott Brown in the highly-contested Massachusetts Senate race on Tuesday.

"Elizabeth Warren will be a strong, tireless and determined advocate for the people of Massachusetts, building on her remarkable record of working to help middle class families get ahead," said Obama.

"Her life's work has been helping ordinary Americans get the fair shot they need and deserve. Elizabeth's passionate advocacy on behalf of consumers led to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The agency is now protecting people from being taken advantage of by powerful companies. I know I can count on Elizabeth to stand with me to create jobs and opportunity for the people of Massachusetts and keep our country moving forward."

Obama appointed Warren to set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the new federal financial watchdog that she advocated for prior to her Senate run.

"I am honored to have President Obama's endorsement and eager to work with him to help the people of Massachusetts and to level the playing field to help middle class families get ahead," Warren said.
