CNN Fact Check: The $2,000 question

(CNN) - Elizabeth Warren, the White House consumer-protection adviser now running for a U.S. Senate seat from Massachusetts, ripped into the tax plan put out by Mitt Romney, the state's former governor, at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night.

"He wants to give tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires," said Warren, a former Harvard law professor who served as the Senate watchdog over the 2008 bank bailout. "But for middle-class families who are hanging on by their fingernails? His plans will hammer them with a new tax hike of up to $2,000."

That's a lot of money to average folks, so let's take a closer look.

Wednesday night to feature Clinton, Warren

Charlotte, North Carolina (CNN) - Former President Bill Clinton's convention speech Wednesday night may be rooted in the former president's own re-election bid from 1996, a time when Clinton pushed similar narratives as President Barack Obama's current campaign slogan to move the country "forward."

"There are some thematic echoes between the two presidents," a senior campaign official said while speaking with CNN reporters covering the convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Hyannis, Massachusetts (CNN) – Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown rode into office two years ago as an everyman with a pickup truck, vowing to "take back the peoples' seat" held by Democrat Ted Kennedy for nearly half a century.
