U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, pledged Friday to “persist” in her efforts to fight for working class Americans and to challenge President Donald Trump and Republicans, as she opened the Massachusetts Democratic Party’s 2018 convention.
Warren thanked Massachusetts Democrats attending the Worcester gathering for helping her raise her voice by electing her the first female senator in the state’s history six years ago.
The Democrat, who touted her work in Washington D.C., however, stressed that she’s not done yet.
“I came here tonight to make you a promise: I’m just getting started,” she told delegates and party activists.
The senator asked Democrats to raise their voices and help her “make the playing field level for working people once again” and “restore our democracy” by sending her back to Capitol Hill in November.
“I can’t do it alone. But we can do it together. We will do it together,” she said. “We will march together. We will run together. We will rally together. We will organize together. We will persist together. We will win together.”
