Elizabeth Warren

Political Party: Democrat

Race to Watch:
U.S. Senate in Massachusetts

Family Life: Divorced from Jim Warren, Warren is re-married to Bruce Mann. She has two children with Jim Warren (Amelia and Alexander) and three grandchildren.

Resume:
Deemed “the Sheriff of Wall Street,” by Time, Elizabeth Warren has built an impressive career in law, education and public policy. Following 2008’s economic meltdown, Warren served as chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel for TARP (the Troubled Asset Relief Program) and also helped create the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Known as a persistent and tireless leader, we can’t wait to see Warren face off in November against GOP incumbent Scott Brown.
