Sen. Warren speaks in Detroit as polls close


DETROIT (WOOD) — A couple thousand people went to watch Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren speak in Detroit Tuesday night.

Warren spoke as the polls closed on Super Tuesday, one of the biggest days of the primary election season.

Her speech started off with a strong statement:

“My name is Elizabeth Warren and I’m going to beat President Trump,” Warren said.

Her event at the Eastern Market drew a mixed crowd, including plenty of young people and teachers. Everyone who spoke to News 8 said they had been on her side since the beginning.

“I think she needs support now more than ever with Super Tuesday and the way that the primaries have gone so far,” supporter Christy Thomas said. “I love her policies and I’m excited to see her speak.”

Warren’s speech was about persistence. From beginning to end, it head a theme of fighting.

“You don’t get what you don’t fight for. I am in this fight,” Warren said.
