BOSTON (AP) — Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is urging supporters to contribute to her political action committee, which she said is designed to give those without deep pockets an equal voice in Washington.
In an email to her backers, Warren said her PAC for a Level Playing Field won't be funded by big corporate interests, but will be funded by what she called "grassroots donors."
BOSTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she's disappointed Senate leaders weren't able to come up with tougher changes to the filibuster rule that allows minority parties to bottle up legislation.
The Massachusetts Democrat had vowed to join with other Democrats to limit use of the filibuster — a move she said would help break gridlock in Washington by curbing the ability of Republicans to block votes.
Elizabeth Warren is going to be the first woman from Massachusetts to serve in the United States Senate. WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill looks at Warren’s historic victory in Tuesday’s election.
The outcome of Tuesday’s closely watched, highly competitive election for US Senate in Massachusetts was not surprising, but was none the less improbable. When the campaign began, Warren was a relatively obscure, first time candidate, according to Tim Vercellotti, the director of the Western New England University Polling Institute.
