Elizabeth Warren to run for Senate

Kai Ryssdal Sep 13, 2011

This final note today. Elizabeth Warren’s sick and tired and she’s not going to take it anymore. So she’s going to run for the Senate. She’s hoping to fill the Massachusetts seat of the late U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy.

Warren, the Harvard Law professor who set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau for the White House — but never officially got the job running it — is set to announce her candidacy tomorrow.

Warren had a frosty — one might even say testy — relationship with Congressional Republicans during her stint in Washington.
