Fresh off her victory over Massachusetts Republican Sen. Scott Brown, Massachusetts Democratic Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren on Tuesday night thrilled a far-left audience with recollections of the successful Senate race and her fight to create a consumer protection agency.
In a speech to the progressive-activist training outfit Midwest Academy and its liberal allies, Warren spoke about the importance of organizing to achieving her visions.
“Organizing is critical,” she stressed.
Warren recalled the assistance she received from Damon Silvers, associate general counsel for the AFL -CIO, and Mike Lux, co-founder and president of Progressive Strategies — both received “Midwest Academy Awards” Tuesday night — to overcome the naysayers and help form the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
“Whatever it is that happens going forward, when somebody says to you, ‘You can’t get anything done in Washington, I don’t know why you try, it’s not possible, you can’t get things done’ — well, why don’t you just stop and look back at them and say, ‘new consumer agency,’” she said.
