Obama backs Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts

(CNN) – She served as one of President Barack Obama's top advisers during the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, so it's no surprise that Obama has thrown his backing behind Elizabeth Warren, who is running for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts.

"Elizabeth Warren will be a strong, tireless and determined advocate for the people of Massachusetts, building on her remarkable record of working to help middle class families get ahead," Obama wrote in his statement. "Her life's work has been helping ordinary Americans get the fair shot they need and deserve."

Fewer barbs in third debate between Brown and Warren

(CNN) – After a pair of confrontational debates between Sen. Scott Brown and his Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren, the two candidates toned it down slightly Wednesday for their third faceoff.

The debate focused largely on issues of taxes and the economy, with Warren asserting Brown favored big banks over middle class families, and Brown volleying back that his bipartisan record in the Senate showed he was on the side of working voters.

Brown, Warren spar in second debate

(CNN) – In their second debate in the Massachusetts Senate race, Republican Sen. Scott Brown on Monday sought to cement his image as an independent fighter, while Democratic opponent Elizabeth Warren attempted to tie the senator to the conservative base of the Republican Party.

"I vote about 50 percent with my party and about 50 percent with the Democratic Party," Brown said at the debate, held at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell. "That's a lot different than what Professor Warren would do."

Brown doesn't 'condone' staffers' actions

(CNN) - Republican Sen. Scott Brown, engaged in one of the nation's closest battles for U.S. Senate against Democrat Elizabeth Warren, said Tuesday he does not condone the offensive gestures and sounds some of his staffers made at a rally this week.

The Brown staffers were captured on video making "war whoops" and "tomahawk chops," an apparent reference to the controversy surrounding Warren's claim to Native American heritage during her time as a professor at Harvard Law School. Both Brown and Warren released television spots Monday on the topic.
