Elizabeth Warren, candidate for U.S. Senate, spoke to the Democratic National Convention Wednesday night, speaking about the middle class and the struggles to find the American dream.

"Americans are fighters. We are tough, resourceful and creative. If we have the chance to fight on a level playing field—where everyone pays a fair share and everyone has a real shot—then no one can stop us."
