(CNN) - Sen. Elizabeth Warren delivered a lively reinforcement of progressive ideals and financial reform at a gala in Washington on Wednesday, touting Democratic political wins after Tuesday night's elections.
"Anyone see any of those elections yesterday?" the Massachusetts Democrat said, referring to New Jersey voters agreeing to raise the minimum wage. "When we fight for that, people know what we're fighting for."
Warren, a rising star in the Democratic party who is considered a potential 2016 presidential contender, also touted the work of the Consumer Financial Protection Agency, which she helped create, for challenging banks on what she described as abuse of credit card fees and charges, and for compensating the American consumers for unfair practices.
"We win because the things we are fighting for are America's agenda. Our agenda is America's agenda," she told a group of Democratic legislators and activists at the annual event sponsored by the Campaign for America’s Future.
Warren continued: "When people tell me, ‘You can't get anything done in Washington. Give up now. There's nothing that can happen.’ I say back to them, we can win."
