Elizabeth Warren, the former Obama adviser and consumer protection advocate, launched an exploratory committee Thursday, the next step toward a possible Senate challenge to Scott Brown (R-Mass.).

Warren, who returned to her post at Harvard Law School after helping create the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, has been recruited by Democrats in the Bay State who believe Brown is beatable in 2012.

The Huffington Post's Sam Stein reported earlier this month that Warren is being assisted by influential Democratic operatives and has been making a series of calls to influential activists and party officials in the state.

This week, Warren has been traveling around Massachusetts on a “listening tour.”

The Progressive Campaign Change Committee has already raised $100,000 on her behalf.
