Warren: 'We need Barack Obama'

US Senate candidate for Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren has offered strong support to President Barack Obama at the Democratic convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.

She said the vision of the Democrats' Republican opponents was clear, saying it amounted to: "I've got mine, the rest of you are on your own."

She said it was important that the country was run "for people" and not corporations.

Ms Warren, a former head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, is battling incumbent Scott Brown for a seat in the Senate in November.
