Warren: I’d Work with Dick Lugar in the Senate

Asked to name a Republican she'd work with, Harvard prof can only name Indiana Senator who lost primary in May


Asked Monday night which Senate Republicans she would work with, Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren could only name Sen. Richard Lugar (R., Ind.) — who lost his May primary and will not be in the Senate come January.

DAVID GREGORY: Can you name Republicans in the Senate today that you are able to work with on big issues, substantive issues that the country faces?

ELIZABETH WARREN: Probably Richard Lugar would be one that comes to mind.

GREGORY: Not going to be there.

WARREN: He’s not going to be there.

GREGORY: Who else can you name Senator?

WARREN: That is a problem. Let me answer the question slightly.

GREGORY: Let me ask the question. Are there any Republicans that will be in the Senate that you feel you can work with substantively and compromise with?

WARREN: It depends on what the subject matter is.

Warren debated Sen. Scott Brown (R., Mass.) for the second time Monday night.
