Elizabeth Warren rally with Alison Grimes at the University of Louisville (June 29, 2014)

Here's the best proof that the Republican caricature of Elizabeth Warren is utterly bunk. Warren just headlined a rally over the weekend with Alison Grimes, the Democrat running to defeat Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell, and it was a smash hit:

The Warren appearance was greeted by an overwhelming crowd that with a line that stretched at least three blocks Sunday morning from the campus venue, the Red Barn.

Warren's populist progressive message is a popular one, and Grimes wouldn't have invited her to conservative Kentucky if that weren't so.

Warren spoke about the need for student loan reform, a pressing issue for countless Americans in all states, red or blue:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
