Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) will campaign for current West Virginia Secretary of State and U.S. Senate candidate Natalie Tennant (D) in July.

Warren, who's been a proponent of student loan reform, will travel with Tennant on July 14 in the state's Eastern Panhandle as she presents her new education plan.

Tennant tweeted the news on Monday:

While Tennant is campaigning with Warren, a darling of progressives, she has differed from President Barack Obama on issues such as the environment, and once called new Environmental Protection Agency regulations "reckless and unrealistic."

Tennant is running to replace Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), whose retirement will open the door for the state to elect its first female senator.

HuffPost Pollster, which combines all publicly available polling data, has Tennant trailing Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) ahead of the November general election:
