More 2012: Warren signals openness to a run

MASSACHUSETTS: “Elizabeth Warren, the architect of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, sent her clearest signal yet yesterday that she will challenge Republican Scott Brown for his Senate seat,” the Boston Globe writes. “In a posting on a website supportive of the Democratic Party, Warren tells the tale of her Aunt Bee and Aunt Bert. Her father’s heart attack and the family’s struggle to pay its bills. Her battle scars from Washington, her empathy for middle-class families in Massachusetts, and lastly, her entreaties for ideas on fixing ‘a badly broken political system.’…  Although Elizabeth Warren’s posting does not explicitly say she will run, it dispels any uncertainty about her interest.”

“Harvard professor Elizabeth Warren sounds a lot like a woman moving toward a Senate run,” Roll Call writes. “In a post on the website Blue Mass Group titled "Coming Home," the longtime consumer advocate, who helped create the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, indicated she would not go quietly back to teaching at Harvard Law School after leaving her position as assistant to the president earlier this month.”
