Warren Makes Post-Debate Campaign Stop in Holyoke

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WGGB) — Democratic Senate Candidate Elizabeth Warren greeted an enthusiastic crowd at The San Juan Bakery.

Warren hit many of the same topics as in last night’s debate with Senator Scott Brown including who represents the middle class and jobs.

“I don’t want to go to washington to work for the millionaires, the billionaires,” said Warren. “I want to go to Washington to fight for jobs for working families.”

“We’re heading toward a financial cliff. And that’s going to mean across the board cuts,” said Warren. “And that will hurt us here in massachusetts. The alternative which I support, is let’s get serious about balancing the budget and bringing down the deficit. Let’s ask everyone to pay a fair share.”

Senator Scott Brown headed to central mass after having breakfast in Chicopee. His only media event was hudson, near Worcester. Warren supporters said that sent a message.

“She’s not going to forget about us here in western mass,” said Tom Andrews, Business Manager for Laborer’s International Union, Local 596. “We all understand that Boston’s its own thing and a lot of people actually forget about western mass. But we believe she’s not going to forget about us. She’s going to help us provide work out here for the city of Holyoke.”

At that event near Worcester, brown picked up an endorsement from democrat Bob Durand, a former state senator from Marlborough.
