Sen. Warren Addresses Massachusetts Democrats at Convention

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is promising fellow Massachusetts Democrats at their annual state convention that she’ll keep fighting for the issues that first propelled her into Senate in her new quest for the White House.

Warren said while defeating President Donald Trump is critical, the party needs to talk about what’s broken in the country — from racism to the growing gap between the wealthy and middle class.

Warren stepped gingerly around the possible challenge to U.S. Sen. Edward Markey by U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy in next year’s Senate race. Kennedy has said he’s weighing a run but has yet to make a final decision.

Warren has endorsed Markey and called him a partner, but she also spoke highly of Kennedy, one of her former Harvard Law School students.
