Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren

Elizabeth Warren is running for the Democratic nomination for senator in Massachusetts. When the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was created in 2010, President Obama named her as a special adviser, and there was some talk that she would eventually head the bureau. But Republican opposition to her was so strong, Obama went with another candidate for the post.

If she wins the Massachusetts U.S. Senate race, the GOP will regret opposing her as head of the CFPB, because they will have no control over her as a senator. They would have been able to shut her up in the federal post, because all they’d have to do was cut off the bureau’s funding.
