U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren brings DNC hall to its feet

(Continued)

“I think she communicated what our country’s about. What the vision of the country is. The fact that it’s about looking out for the little guy and the little woman,” said Boston City Councilor Tito Jackson. He said, “I think it showed how real Elizabeth Warren is. Some of the criticism has been how do we connect. She connected today. She showed who and what she is.”

Attorney General Martha Coakley, who lost to Brown in a 2010 special election for the Senate seat, said November’s contest would be different because of the voting record Brown has built up since taking the seat.

“It’s three years later. This is a longer campaign. There’s other context for this,” said Coakley, continuing, “People now have a record, a Scott Brown record to look at, and she has a very strong record herself.”

Alexis Lewis, a California delegate who is originally from Ada, Oklahoma, and another fan of Warren, said her account of growing up in Oklahoma rang true.

“I can relate to that. I can relate to the fact that, you know, it’s pretty tough,” said Lewis.
