Among the attendees was Sarah Silverman.
Reporters weren’t allowed into the event, but one of the attendees provided a recording of her speech to Capital.
According to the attendee, the crowd of small donors was a boisterous one, with many of the people there taking pictures and video of Warren with their phones.
“I love it when the nerds in the crowd start getting into it,” she said, as they cheered her call for more government investment in research.
She talked about how Democrats had tried to warn her about how Republicans would treat her in such a tough race—”they’ll make your life miserable, they’ll make your family’s life miserable, they’ll make your dog’s life miserable”—and said Democrats needed to get a better pitch for prospective candidates.
Discussing Brown’s voting record over the course of his time in the Senate, she called it “a good reminder of what’s happened in Washington the last two years.”
