AUBURN, Mass. – With only a few days until the election, Elizabeth Warren, Democratic challenger for Republican Scott Brown's U.S. Senate seat, made a pit stop in Auburn on Saturday, delivering a speech to hundreds of supporters at a “Get out the Vote” rally.

According to the Warren campaign, about 400 individuals attended the rally at the Central Massachusetts AFL/CIO on Route 20 in Auburn, which also included speeches from U.S. Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) and Lt. Gov. Tim Murray.

Warren was pumped up at the rally.

“It is good to be here,” Warren emphatically told the crowd. “Central Massachusetts is the heart of Massachusetts, and it’s going to be the heart of this campaign.”

Warren said she’ll be “out there working her heart out” over the next four days of campaigning, but she also needs help from supporters to “get out the vote,” she said.

“Are you ready to get out there and knock on doors, make the phone calls to make sure you get your friends, family and neighbors to vote,” Warren said. “Remember, it’s about persuasion, but it’s also about getting all those folks to the polls.”

McGovern told the excited audience that Scott Brown has a lot of TV commercials, but he doesn’t have “this kind of army of volunteers, going door-to-door, who are talking to their neighbors, friends, relatives and anyone who will listen about the importance of this campaign.”

“I want to thank you, Elizabeth, for running,” said McGovern, who has been in office for 16 years. “I want to thank you for fighting the good fight, for keeping the faith and for understanding what politicians are supposed to stand for.

“We have enough people in Washington who are in the back pockets of big corporations,” he added. “We need more people who are on the side of working families.”

In addition, Murray said that “we might not have the most amount of money, but it’s clear we have the most amount of heart and a great candidate in Elizabeth Warren.”

“She has already played an important role in standing up for families and consumers throughout her career, and she’s going to be able to take it to the next level,” Murray said.

Auburn resident Barbara Merolli, who regularly holds Warren signs in Drury Square, was thrilled that Warren made a stop in Auburn.

“She’s going to be a senator for all the people,” Merolli said. “Not just the eastern part of the state. She’ll be very fair and considerate for everyone in the state, and I look forward to having a senator that does that.”

Vandalism, stolen signs, etc.. This is not right for either side. I hope we are Graftonites first.

Male_DV_Victim:

If Warren wins this election, it will be based solely on her gender and her promises to promote women's attack on men's rights.

VAWA is the one part of the war on men.

A vote for Warren is a vote against men and their rights.

Whitinsville1:

Too funny! Thanks. I needed a laugh.

Huckleberry:

You Go Girl!

The Republican's must be starting to 'cry' if she gets in we are going to have a harder time in dismantling Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

Plus how may us going to control a Women's Body, plus potentially keep them less paid then their Male counterparts in the working world?

pegf:

John B. - Some one stole all the Warren signs on Brigham Hill Road as well. In addition, some one has up rooted it a couple of times so it could not be seen.

John B:

For the 3rd time my Warren sign has been stolen out of my yard. I called the police and they said that many Warren signs have been stolen in Grafton.

coleary:

And my car that had a Romney and Brown bumper stickers in the window had the window smashed out. Idiots abound on both sides.

Liberal:

coleary - Don't you think it might have had something to do with the bags of $$$ in the back seat. Your sticker said - Brown "He's one of us" that's when the vandals realized this car must be owned by a MILLIONAIRE"
