Elizabeth Warren has launched a listening tour across Massachusetts, exploring her options for a potential Senate run against Scott Brown. However, the listening tour is invite only and is not open to the public.
From the Boston Herald:
Warren has been traveling the state on a listening tour, but it is not exactly public friendly or anything akin to shaking hands at Fenway. The invitation-only meetings are not open to the press or the general public. It is the sort of thing you would expect from an elite Harvard professor from Oklahoma…
During these secret meetings, Warren has been touting her middle-class credentials.
As a Harvard professor married to another Harvard professor, she may find connecting with middle-class voters a tough sell, and these closed-door meetings don’t seem to be any help in that regard.
If Elizabeth Warren wants to really hear what the people of Massachusetts are saying, she should host public events and make herself available to the people of Massachusetts instead of holding secret and private events with political insiders.
Her lack of transparency and regard for openly hearing what people have to say is telling more about her than her pre-campaign rhetoric.
