BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts U.S. Senate challenger Elizabeth Warren says policies outlined by Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney and his running mate will hurt women.

Warren, a Democrat, was speaking Tuesday in support of a Center for American Progress Action Fund’s newest study on how policies promoted by Romney and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan will affect women.

She told reporters the Republican agenda will weaken women’s health and finances and move the country “backwards.” The Washington D.C.-based, nonpartisan Center for American Progress Action Fund promotes progressive ideas and actions.

Warren also threw jabs at her opponent, U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, saying his actions and votes in Congress show he is in line with the Republican agenda.

A spokesman said Brown is an “independent thinker” who has a proven bipartisan record.
