Elizabeth Warren to try for impact near and far

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Elizabeth Warren plans to deliver a speech Wednesday night that will portray her as a fighter who, along with President Obama, “stood strong” on behalf of the middle class to create a consumer protection agency, according to her chief campaign strategist.

The 12-minute, prime-time speech at the Democratic National Convention offers Warren a crucial opportunity to sell herself to Massachusetts voters, especially the undecided among them who may have tuned out the early phases of her campaign against Senator Scott Brown, a Republican. But Warren’s message may also help reenergize liberals within the Democratic Party, particularly those who feel Obama has not fought hard enough against Republican opposition.
