Elizabeth Warren to Address Mass. Labor Day Event

Posted by jcashman

BOSTON (AP) — Harvard Law School professor and potential U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is set to address a Labor Day gathering in Boston.

Warren, a Democrat, will deliver the keynote address Monday at a breakfast held by the Greater Boston Labor Council. It’s her first major speech since her announcement last month of an exploratory committee to consider a challenge to Republican Sen. Scott Brown next year.

If Warren runs, she will join a Democratic field that already includes City Year co-founder Alan Khazei (KAY’-zee), Newton Mayor Setti Warren, state Rep. Thomas Conroy (D-Wayland), and Robert Massie, a one-time candidate for lieutenant governor.

Warren was chosen by President Barack Obama last year to set up the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. But congressional Republicans opposed her becoming the bureau’s director.
