Democratic senatorial candidate Elizabeth Warren is scheduled to be the prime-time lead-in for former President Bill Clinton’s speech at the Democratic National Convention on Sept. 5, the Democratic National Committee announced on Monday. The DNC announced Clinton's spot in the convention line-up earlier on Monday.
Warren, who is running in Massachusetts to unseat Sen. Scott Brown, is running neck-and-neck with the Republican, according to a recent poll.
In her speech, she will contrast President Obama’s economic plan with Mitt Romney’s, and "outline the impact it will have on middle-class families across the country," according to The Boston Globe.
“At the president’s side, Elizabeth Warren helped level the playing field for all Americans and put in place safeguards to ensure that everyone, from Wall Street to Main Street, play by the same set of rules,” Stephanie Cutter, a deputy Obama campaign manager, told The Globe.
