Warren's final push for senate race begins in Springfield

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

In a building that has seen so much history, Elizabeth Warren visited the Old First Church for a rally on Saturday morning, as she began what she hopes is the homestretch to making some history of her own.

With Rep. John Lewis of Georgia firing up the packed house inside the church, Warren had plenty of support as she launched her final weekend of campaigning.

That support included the leader of the Bay State.

"We need people who are about lifting the whole country up, not just protecting the folks who have a way of assuring their interests no matter who is in power," said Gov. Deval Patrick.

When Warren took the microphone, it gave her one last chance to explain to Western Mass voters the differences between herself and her opponent, Sen. Scott Brown.

"Who did Scott Brown stand with?" Warren asked the crowd.  "Our students or millionaires?  I want to go to Washington D.C. to fight for the kids who want to get an education."

Now, with just two days before Election Day, Warren is counting on her supporters to make a big impact.

"You have a chance to live it on Tuesday," said Warren. "Please, be part of this election. Are you ready?"
