Warren, Brown Senate race is priciest

Washington (CNNMoney) – The $48 million fight for the Senate seat in Massachusetts pitting Harvard University professor Elizabeth Warren against Sen. Scott Brown is now this year's priciest congressional race.

Warren, a Democrat, is the nation's most recognized consumer advocate who helped create the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

    Yeah, because this is the "real" story when videos are surfacing of Brown supporters mocking Warren supporters by doing tomahawk chops and "war chants."

    A man may be defined by those who would follow him. Where does that leave Brown?

    Brown seems to be going after the voters of MA who hate American Indians. It sure hides his vote against the veterans jobs bill in the senate.

    Why do we need a veterans jobs bill? Obama said the private sector is doing just fine so they should be able to find jobs without government assistance or make work jobs programs that dry up in a year.

    Go Warren. Be proud of your Native roots. There are a lot of Americans with Native roots and don't even know it.

    Can't believe the racist tactics by the Brown Campaign.

    I know Massachusetts is a liberal state but would they actually put this communist/socialist Warren in the Senate? She probably has more in common with Fidel Castro than she does with most of the people in the state.

    Warren has raised $28.2 million so far, largely from law firms, universities including Harvard and left-leaning advocacy groups like Emily's List which aims to elect pro-choice women.

    So universities are contrbuting to Warren??? Isn't that money supposed to be used for EDUCATION of the students that go there??!! And we wonder why school costs are through the roof! And it looks like the baby killling industry is backing Warren. How nice. She's for the little people, just not the real little people known as babies.

    Speaking of the need for improving education in this country....

    Let me be the first to apologize to you for our country's failure to do better teaching you critical thinking skills.

    truth – You asked why we need a veteran's jobs bill? The answer is the job destroyer who created a Bush republican near depression with the loss of 8 million jobs in his last three years. I'll give you a hint, he is from Texas and is the author of "Cowboy Diplomacy."

    No story about Warren offering legal advice (in asbestos cases) when she's not licensed to practice law in MA? Why not, CNN?
