WASHINGTON — Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) pushed back Thursday evening against the notion that her new Senate position means that she will be a "liberal liaison" between Democratic leaders and the party’s progressive base.
"I don’t quite understand it," said Warren of the oft-repeated, informal title that’s been used in media reports to describe her new leadership position.
Warren’s elevation was ratified Thursday during a more than three-hour, closed-door meeting, where Democrats elected their new Senate leaders for the next Congress. Warren’s role had not previously been disclosed to the caucus, having only been reported as a possibility by HuffPost the afternoon before. Before the meeting had ended, reporters were being told by sources outside Reid’s office that Warren would be a "liberal liaison," and would additionally hold a policy portfolio.
