Elizabeth Warren will have a prime speaking slot at the Democratic National Convention, the Boston Globe reports. The former White House financial reform adviser and now Massachusetts Senate candidate will speak immediately before former President Bill Clinton, on the second-to-last night of the event.
Warren and Clinton will speak on Wednesday, Sept. 5, and form a one-two punch aimed at crystallizing the choice between President Obama and Republican Mitt Romney in the general election, the Obama campaign said.
The Massachusetts Senate candidate will contrast the president’s economic plan with Romney’s, and outline the impact it will have on middle class families across the country.
“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,” said Stephanie Cutter, a deputy Obama campaign manager.
