BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Sen. Elizabeth Warren was greeted by a large crowd of supporters as she left her home to vote in the Massachusetts Democratic Primary.
She was accompanied by her husband, Bruce, and her dog, Bailey, as she made her way down the street. Many supporters walked with her to her local polling place in Cambridge.
"I am so happy to be in the place where Bruce and I have been voting for 25 years because we've been here to vote every time with that spark of hope in our hearts that the vote will matter, that we will build a better country," Warren said. "That's what this election, for me, is all about."

Warren stopped along the way to talk and take selfies with her supporters.
"2020 is a moment we've been called to in history," Warren said. "And it is a moment not just to get rid of Donald Trump, it is a moment to build the America of our best values."
While speaking to WBZ NewsRadio, Warren said the believes "the democratic party is a progressive party."
"I believe the democratic ideas are popular, not just within our party, but across our country," Warren said. "And I think that people across this country see big problems and they don't want somebody to nibble around the edges.They want to see big solutions."
The results from Super Tuesday may make or break Warren's campaign. She has yet to come in higher than third place in any of the state's primaries or caucuses.
"I feel confident about getting out and talking to people about what's broken. And the best part is how we're going to fix it," Warren told WBZ NewsRadio. "Today is just part of getting out and talking to people talking to people all across this country and hearing from democracy. We're going to have 40 percent of our delegates up for grabs today, and that is a big deal."
Warren currently is facing a major challenge from Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who has been making a play for home turf. Over the weekend, Sanders held two rallies in Massachusetts — one in Boston and one in Springfield.
However, Warren said she is not "worried," and that she is "happy to be part of this democratic process."
Meanwhile, former Vice President Joe Biden has received endorsements from Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Both Klobuchar and Buttigieg dropped out of the race ahead of Super Tuesday. Biden won the South Carolina Primary on Saturday.
