Senator-elect, Elizabeth Warren greets constituents
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WHDH) -- Voters put democrat Elizabeth Warren at the head of the class. The senator-elect became Massachusetts’ first female U.S. Senator.
The morning after her win, Warren hugged supporters and described when she realized she had won.
“I was in the room with a lot of people and somebody came over and said, ‘NBC called it, and I thought, ‘Called what?’ They said, ‘You won,’” Warren said.
It is still sinking in for the Harvard professor. She shook hands with voters at the same South Boston MBTA stop where she jumpstarted her political career a little more than a year ago.
“I always knew what this fight was about and I always knew why I was in it and I always knew that this was the right thing,” said Warren.
Warren’s supporters at Tuesday night’s victory party knew it too. She told them she would not be just a senator, but their champion.
She also had a message for Scott Brown supporters, “No more partisan divides on this. I hear you loud and clear on that. This is something we’ve got to do together.”
She only made two stops Wednesday and then returned to her Cambridge home to spend the day with her family.
