(CNN) – Democratic Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren received some warm praise Monday from her party's top surrogate: President Barack Obama.
After Warren introduced the president at a Boston campaign event, Obama took the stage and urged voters to support Warren in her heated challenge against Republican Sen. Scott Brown.

"She is going to be an outstanding senator for Massachusetts, and everybody here has got to turn out for her," Obama said, before giving remarks at Boston's Symphony Hall.
The president particularly acknowledged her work as his top adviser during the formation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. His comments echoed her own campaign themes that attempt to portray the candidate as the one best suited to fight for the middle class.
"Nobody fought harder for Wall Street reform, the reform that is now law and protecting consumers all across the country, than Elizabeth," Obama said. "She has been a fierce advocate since before I knew her for the middle class, and she has been advocating on core issues that matter to families her entire career."
For her part, Warren spent a large chunk of her introduction attacking Obama's opponent, Mitt Romney, taking aim at his controversial 2011 remark that "corporations are people, too."
Romney's comment came at the Iowa State Fair while he was defending big business against large tax hikes, adding that "Everything a corporation earns ultimately goes to people."
Warren, however, staunchly disagreed.
"No, Mitt. Corporations are not people," she said, repeating a line she frequently uses on the campaign trail. "People have hearts. They have kids. They get jobs. They get sick. They love and they cry and they dance. They live and they die. Learn the difference."
She continued: "And Mitt, learn this, we don't run this country for corporations. We run it for people."
Warren said the presidential election would be a "hard fight" but that she would give Obama her full support.
"I'm here tonight to say, Mr. President. I stand with you," she said, rallying the crowd as Obama prepared to walk on stage.
In a traditionally blue state like Massachusetts, Obama's accolades can go far for a politician. Even Brown, himself, has not entirely kept his distance from the president. As he campaigns on a theme of bipartisanship, Brown appeared with Obama in the April signing of a bill that he co-authored in the Senate.
Brown first took the seat in a 2010 special election to fill the late Sen. Ted Kennedy. Both he and Warren have been statistically tied in polls this year, signaling what many expect to be one of, if not the, most contested Senate races of the year.
