Warren considers Senate run 

Some progressives aren't giving up the fight for Elizabeth Warren, whom President Obama bypassed as the head of the federal government's new consumer watchdog agency. 

The Progressive Change Campaign Committee is launching a campaign to elect Warren, a Democrat, to the Massachusetts Senate and unseat freshman Republican Sen. Scott Brown.

The committee had lobbied hard for Warren to lead the agency that she helped create as special secretary to the Treasury. Obama instead appointed Richard Cordray, the former attorney general of Ohio, to head the newly created Consumer Financial Protection Board. 

Warren did not rule out a Senate run on Monday, but said she is looking forward to taking some time off from Washington.

"Massachusetts does beckon, in the sense that it's my home and I need to go home," she told NBC on Monday, when asked whether she planned to run.

"I've been working 13 hours a day," she said, adding that she looks forward to taking a "step away from this" and spending time with her nieces and nephews.
