Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) took to Twitter on Tuesday in praise of the Senate’s vote to advance Richard Cordray’s nomination to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, calling it a “historic day for working families.”
I couldn’t be more pleased that Rich Cordray will finally get the vote that he deserves. This is a historic day for working families!
