After a closed door meeting that lasted for nearly an hour, senator-elect Warren told reporters she was grateful for what she called the “ good counsel” of the governor.

Patrick said he expected Warren to be a good partner in Washington.   Warren was tight lipped on most of the questions from reporters. She would not say which senate committees she’d like to serve on. Warren said talks about that are  on going  with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. She said she wanted to be on committees that would help her address the middle class issues she stressed during the campaign.
