Dean Dozen candidate Elizabeth Warren will take the stage in Charlotte tonight as one of the Democratic National Convention's biggest stars. But back home in Massachusetts, she's still locked in a tight race against Wall Street Republican Scott Brown.
The latest poll out of Massachusetts has Elizabeth down three points. That's inside the margin of error -- a statistical tie.
We need Elizabeth to win -- we need all of our Dean Dozen candidates to win if we're going to take back the House, elect a progressive Senate majority, and get Congress working for the middle class again.
Who are the Dean Dozen? They're 12 progressive champions running in close races across the country:
* Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) * Annie Kuster (NH-02) * Joe Miklosi (CO-06) * Shelli Yoder (IN-09) * Jose Hernandez (CA-10) * Martin Heinrich (NM-Sen) * Raul Ruiz (CA-36) * Kathy Boockvar (PA-08) * Elizabeth Warren (MA-Sen) * Mazie Hirono (HI-Sen) * Manan Trivedi (PA-06) * Tammy Baldwin (WI-Sen)
These 12 candidates could make the difference between Speaker Boehner and Speaker Pelosi -- between Majority Leader McConnell and Majority Leader Reid.
