U.S. Senate Candidate Elizabeth Warren stopped in Medford Wednesday as her race with Republican incumbent Scott Brown approaches its final month.
Warren, accompanied by Medford Mayor Michael McGlynn and U.S. Rep. Ed Markey, visited City Hall before heading to the Medford Senior Center, where she made her way to a stage as the theme of Sylvester Stallone's "Rocky" was played by a brass band.
McGlynn gave his official endorsement to Warren and credited her for challenging Wall Street interests before she gave a brief speech. Warren told the audience that the affordable care act's survival -- along with benefits for seniors -- could hinge on who they send to Washington.
"After many years of fighting, we finally got a health care bill that passed the House, that passed the Senate, signed into law by the President and okayed by the United States Supreme Court," Warren said. "What Scott Brown and the Republicans are running on is to repeal that and go back to fighting again -- four years more -- they don't have any alternatives to offer."
It was Warren's third stop in Medford since she officially declared her candidacy. She visited Medford's Democratic Caucus in February and campaigned in the Hillside neighborhood in May.
Brown made a stop in West Medford in July, where he received the endorsement of Medford City Councilor Rick Caraviello.
