BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Sen. Elizabeth Warren spent the final day of 2019 trying to rally core supporters with a New Year's Eve speech at Boston's historic Old South Meeting House.

On the one-year anniversary of her decision to run for president, Warren railed against billionaires in both parties, Washington corruption, and President Donald Trump.

She didn't mince words in describing Senate Republicans who are refusing to let witnesses testify in President Trump's impeachment trial, calling them "fawning, spineless defenders of his crimes."

Sen. Warren asked the 700-some supporters gathered to imagine a better world if she's elected in 2020.

"Imagine a country where the decisions made in Washington aren't simply bought and paid for by big donors," she said. "Where the fossil fuel industry doesn't have a death grip on our planet."

She said she's tired of corporate interests being put before the needs of the country.

"When I am president, we will attack corruption in Washington head on," she said. "We will attack the concentration of power that makes this government work great for the wealthy and well-connected, and not so much for anyone else."
