Massachusetts Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren has been appointed to the Banking Committee, an assignment that was expected for the consumer advocate.
She will remain the one woman in a leadership position in the room when important issues effecting women are negotiated over the next year and a strong reminder that Democrats stand with women and promote them to positions of power.
While Mitt Romney talks about binders full of women, Democrats have ballots full of women.
Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brown and his Democratic rival Elizabeth Warren were being joined Sunday on the campaign trail by two former political rivals in the waning hours of Massachusetts’ grueling U.S. Senate race.
As the campaign draws to a close it has become very apparent that Obama will return to the White House and that Harry Reid will lead a Democratic Senate.
Romney is dragging his own campaign and every Republican down. Republican operatives and House and Senate candidates have conceded as much throughout the month of September.
Brown was one of the first to call for the Congressman Todd Akin to bow out of the race, and he sees the need to reassure female voters of his support for abortion rights.
Paul Ryan has changed the Electoral College math. With the pick, Romney has chosen a path that writes off almost all of the country and focuses the election on the industrial Midwest.
How dare Harry Reid, the Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate, spew his latest unsubstantiated rumors against Mitt Romney?
Harry Reid got – as he often does – in calling Republican donors “angry old white men”. Imagine the reaction if House Speaker John Boehner were to say something such as: support or donations to Obama made by 17 angry black men.
