US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren visited with Linden Ponds residents on Tuesday to meet and greet local voters.

According to Marty Saunders, the chairman of the Political Interest Committee at Linden Ponds, both Warren and US Senator Scott Brown were invited to speak to residents, though Brown has yet to respond to the request.

At the meeting, Warren spoke for half an hour and answered questions for another 30 minutes, Saunders said.

"She had a standard speech -- why she was running, her past history, why she thought it was a good idea for a woman her age to run, what she cared about in the country - then she opened it up to questions and answered some very good questions," Saunders said. "She was only supposed to be here for an hour, but she found the receiption to be so warm, she was gracious to people in the audience, and the teens who work here stopped her. She dallied longer than she was supposed to."

Over 400 people attended the session and additional people watched from a live TV feed at Linden Ponds.

The stop was one of several Warren made in the South Shore on Tuesday. She also visited the South Shore Country Club in Hingham and the site of the Town Brook construction in Quincy with Mayor Thomas Koch.
