Elizabeth Warren gets endorsement from Rep. Jan Schakowsky

Ahead of her Saturday night town hall on Chicago’s North Side, Democratic presidential candidate and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren received the endorsement of 10-term U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky of Evanston.

Schakowsky, a member of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s leadership team, said in a statement she first got to know Warren when she proposed creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

“But she didn’t just come up with the idea,” Schakowsky said. “She turned it into reality. She convinced newly elected President Barack Obama to embrace it. She helped organize a public groundswell of voters to support it. She led the battle to convince Congress to pass it. Then she was asked by President Obama to set it up and staff it.”

Schakowsky said if Warren could do that as an unelected official, “think what she will do as president of the United States.”

4. This!

 

So many times this!

“But she didn’t just come up with the idea,” Schakowsky said. “She turned it into reality. She convinced newly elected President Barack Obama to embrace it. She helped organize a public groundswell of voters to support it. She led the battle to convince Congress to pass it. Then she was asked by President Obama to set it up and staff it.”

This is why I am staunchly in her corner!
