Plymouth: Democratic Senate President tells Brown challengers, “take a real look in the mirror”

The Senate President suggests the Democratic field of candidates looking to unseat Republican Scott Brown take a reality check of their chances now that Elizabeth Warren has entered the race.

Senate President Therese Murray was aware, even before the official announcement was made, that Harvard Law School Professor Elizabeth Warren intended to become part of a field of a half dozen other Democrats who want the party’s nomination to challenge Senator Scott Brown.

“She called me before she announced”, said Murray. “I have not, as yet, met her or had any lengthy discussions. I know of her background and her career and she’s a person I think would certainly qualify and would probably make a great candidate.”

Murray was asked what she thought Warren’s chances are?

“You know, I don’t know. It’s such a crowded field. I would like to see a lot the of people in the field take a real look in the mirror and see what their chances are and then maybe regroup and say, you know what, maybe we could throw our support behind somebody else.”

Warren, a long-time critic of Wall Street, has spent the last several years in Washington working to establish a consumer protection agency.
