``Not all state lawmakers pushing for a breakup of big banks cite Warren, a liberal who came to prominence because of her calls to get tough on Wall Street, as an inspiration. Several are conservatives with a tea partier's dislike of Wall Street and the taxpayer bailouts that resulted from the financial crisis.

In South Dakota, state Rep. Stace Nelson -- a self-described tea partier with a "mean libertarian" streak -- and other state lawmakers urged Senate Banking Committee Chairman Tim Johnson (D-S.D.) last month to support Glass-Steagall after the state Legislature adopted the measure earlier this year.''
