A bad month for Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts keeps getting worse. She finished in a respectable third place in the Iowa caucuses, but a results-tallying meltdown muddled what could have been a good evening. New Hampshire was better at logistics but worse for her candidacy, considering she ended up closer to candidates who dropped out after the primary than those who finished on top.
Her staff members and plenty of allies argue that as a result, she is being ignored by the news media and some voters during a pivotal moment in the primary, and she is at risk of becoming less relevant in the nominating process something her campaign is now trying to reverse.
When her caucus-night speech in Iowa was cut off, her campaign aides complained privately to cable networks. When her speech after the New Hampshire primary was not carried live at all, they took their criticism public.
Elizabeth hasnt been getting the same kind of media coverage as candidates she outperformed, read a recent fundraising email to supporters. We cant count on the media to cover our campaign fairly, so were taking our case directly to voters.
Martha Zimmerman and Natalie Buddiga, who attended Warrens rally in Reno, both said they felt she was being counted out the race too early. But they also admitted to a sense of despair that was quietly setting in.
I just dont run into other Elizabeth Warren fans, and Im always meeting these Bernie die-hards, said Buddiga, 25, who wore a shirt that read The Future is Female.
Zimmerman, 29, a self-described voracious consumer of political media, said the past week had been difficult. While sexism cannot be separated from analysis of Warrens candidacy, she said, neither could the reality of her performance in New Hampshire.

Klobo beating Pocahantas in New Hampshire was a fatal blow.

Time to pack it in and go to the Happy Lobbying Ground.
Elizabeth Warren’s wampum belt is down to a few trinkets, some change and a Pete Rose rookie card she’s taking to the collectibles dealer.
If ever you have difficulty getting to sleep, just bring up the neglected squaw’s twitter page.
Holy hell. I was nodding after reading 3 posts.
And she thought she could trust Hillary, I bet. Hillarys hands are all over this.
