    Senator-elect Warren to speak across the state

    Senator-elect Elizabeth ­Warren will begin traveling the state this weekend for a series of public events designed to thank her supporters and to ­allow new constituents who did not support her to size her up.

    “We’re in this together, and we’ve got to work together from the start,” Warren said in a statement. “We’ve got to help people get back to work, level the playing field for our small businesses, and help middle-class families get a fair shot to get ahead.”

    An announcement from the campaign said Warren is not restrict­ing the event to party activ­ists. But they will undoubtedly be the most likely to ­attend. And Warren’s post-
    election engagement offers a hint that she may try to leverage the passion among her supporters when she begins her Senate term in January.

    A spokesman said Warren plans to offer brief remarks and then greet constituents individually.

    The events also serve as a bookend to the series of house parties she did with Democratic Party activists in summer 2011, before officially announcing her candidacy.

    At one of those events, ­Warren gave an impromptu speech about the role of the public sector in the success of business that created a sensation among activists across the country, after a video of the speech was posted on YouTube.

    Warren will go to Theodore’s Restaurant in Springfield at 1 p.m. Saturday and then to the Teamsters Local 170 in Worcester at 3:30 p.m.

    In addition, at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, she will meet with supporters at the Eagle Event ­Center in Fall River.

    A campaign announcement said Warren plans to announce similar events soon.
