Nov. 6, 2012 Democrat Elizabeth Warren takes the stage during a rally at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel in Boston after defeating incumbent Sen. Scott Brown (R) in the Massachusetts Senate race. Warren won 54 percent of the vote. “We are going to fight for a level playing field and we are going to put people back to work,” she told the crowd. “To all the small-business owners who are tired of a system rigged against them, we’re going to hold the big guys accountable.” Michael Dwyer/AP Buy Photo
