image for Elizabeth Warren urges voters to think beyond just defeating Donald Trump

Warren stepped gingerly around the possible challenge to U.S. Sen. Edward Markey by U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy in next year’s Senate race.

Warren has endorsed Markey and called him a partner, but she also spoke highly of Kennedy, one of her former Harvard Law School students.

Warren hit on familiar themes in her address to the home state crowd.

She also urged Democrats to think beyond just defeating Trump.

“This dark moment requires more than being ‘not Trump,’ because a country that elects someone like Donald Trump is a country that is already in serious trouble,” Warren said.

“We need to talk honestly about what’s broken in America, but even more than that we must show America that we have plans to make big, structural changes to fix what’s broken.”.

Before addressing the convention, Warren told reporters she has a good relationship with Markey and Kennedy. »
