Elizabeth Warren could be a formidable challenger to Scott Brown as Massachusetts senator. And today, she made another move toward becoming a candidate by filing paperwork to form an exploratory committee allowing her to rake in donations and volunteers, The Boston Globe reported.

In July, National Journal reported that Sen. Brown commissioned a head-to-head poll showing him leading Warren with a 53-28 percent margin among likely voters.
