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

BY:

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.
