Elizabeth Warren is turning her attention from protecting US consumers to serving Massachusetts constituents in the US Senate.

Wednesday, the Harvard law professor kicked off her statewide campaign to defeat Sen. Scott Brown and recapture the seat once held by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy.

Brown won a special election in January of last year to fill out Kennedy's unexpired term, following the Democratic senator's death in August of 2009.

Warren began her campaign Wednesday morning by meeting with commuters in Boston. By the end of the first day, she was expected to travel to several Massachusetts cities and towns in the central and western part of the state.
