Elizabeth Warren Endorsed By Russ Feingold - jaxx - 09-27-2011 10:37 AM
WASHINGTON -- Elizabeth Warren's campaign for U.S. Senate received a major endorsement on Tuesday, picking up the support of former Wisconsin senator Russ Feingold. It's Feingold's first Senate endorsement of the 2012 election season and a clear indication that Warren's race will be a top priority for progressives around the country.
In an email scheduled to be sent Tuesday morning, and provided to The Huffington Post by Feingold's staff, Feingold calls support for Warren's campaign "an absolutely crucial part of our fight against the nasty influence of corporate money in politics."
"Elizabeth has fought for years to rein in Wall Street and protect the middle class," writes Feingold in the email to backers of Progressives United, his political action committee.
<..> Feingold's endorsement gives perhaps the strongest signal yet that Warren's race is also a top priority for progressive leaders, and the nod could likely lead to a surge of online donations from around the country.
Good for him. Now will others follow.

It says he won't run for either Governor or Senator. Too bad.
But, good news for Warren!

Yeah, Elizabeth isn't just your average Dem running against Scott Brown in Mass in Teddy's old seat!
And, Ms Warren does NOT run away from President Obama..I like that about her. It also shows she knows what she's doing as well as her brilliant inimitable way of explaining what's up.
