BOSTON (Reuters) - Elizabeth Warren, the outspoken consumer advocate and former Obama administration official, will announce a run for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts Wednesday, local media reported.

Warren, a Harvard Business School professor, will be the highest-profile Democrat to go up against popular Massachusetts Republican incumbent Scott Brown, who in 2010 won the seat held for decades by the late Edward Kennedy, a liberal icon.

She locked horns with Wall Street in her work setting up the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and as chairwoman of the congressional panel created to oversee the 2008 U.S. banking bailout.

Opposition from Republicans in Congress was thought to have stopped President Barack Obama from nominating Warren to run the consumer agency.

Warren, 62, formed an exploratory committee for a Senate run in mid-August, and has been on a tour of the state talking to potential supporters.

Campaign aides were not immediately available for comment.
