Starting more than two hours before the campaign’s rally at Morse Auditorium at Boston University, Elizabeth Warren supporters lined up around the block for seats.
Congressman Capuano took to the stage, reminding the crowd that his district includes 32 colleges and universities and how the election will affect the future of young people across the Commonwealth. The Congressman explained how Republicans are willing “to take all the things we have come to take for granted, away. Medicare, Social Security. Pell Grants.” He then encouraged campaign supporters to talk to their friends and neighbors and canvass and phonebank in support of the campaign.
Governor Patrick then took the stage and made a powerful endorsement for Elizabeth: “I want to spend my time working with and for the kind of person that puts their political capital on the line. We have big challenges and they require real political courage. This is your cause, this is our cause, this is Elizabeth Warren’s cause.”
Elizabeth Warren took the stage next. “I want to go to Washington to fight for women,” she said. “I want to go to Washington to fight for the future of our earth. I want to go to Washington to hold Wall Street accountable. I want to go to Washington to fight for fair taxes. I will be someone you can count on, who will be with you, not some of the time, but all of the time.”
