Warren’s direct appeal to the political party is a contrast to Brown’s approach. Brown spent little time at last week’s Republican National Convention, and declined a speaking role.
On Tuesday, Brown launched a new website that depicts Warren as a ranting hypocrite who has falsely claimed that she has Native American roots.
Since arriving in Charlotte, Warren has conducted a string of interviews. She spoke to the state delegation and has worked on her speech. She plans to hold a fund-raising brunch Wednesday, and will return to Boston Thursday for the primary election.
The biggest distraction from Warren’s moment may be football. The NFL moved up its opening night to Wednesday to accommodate Obama’s speech Thursday. That could hurt her ability to reach independent voters in Massachusetts who may be more interested in watching the Dallas Cowboys take on the New York Giants.
Warren smiled when asked about the game, then suggested fans could record it.
“So be it,” she said. “I’m counting on TiVo.”
