  • Progressives push for Warren as treasury secretary, signaling bigger ideological battle if Biden wins

    WASHINGTON - Progressives are pushing hard to see Elizabeth Warren leading the Treasury Department in an opening salvo of a coming ideological struggle for control of key government posts if Joe Biden wins the presidency. Donors, activists and leaders on the left want Warren, a Democratic senator from Massachusetts, as treasury secretary, more than a half-dozen of them said. And people Warren has spoken to are under the impression that she wants the job if she is offered it. "There's a huge gap between Sen. Warren and any other likely candidate," said Larry Cohen, former president of the Communications Workers...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is backtracking on the idea that his eventual running mate will be a woman of color. Biden, who is facing criticism after appearing to claim that African Americans considering voting for President Donald Trump “ain’t black,” told CNN’s Dana Bash on Tuesday during an interview that he was not ready to promise to put a woman of color on the ticket despite rumors in recent weeks that he was heading in that direction. “Look, I’m not going to get into that now because we haven’t gotten there yet,” the former vice president said when asked...

    Whether on the defensive or the offensive, presidential candidates rarely have an opportunity to take a breath and send a clear signal about how their administrations will govern. Currently, the media is salivating over who will be former Vice President Joe Biden's running mate. Will it be Sen. Kamala Harris of California? Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams? Or a dark-horse selection like Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada? But in the current moment, Biden's VP may not be the most important announcement he can make. Given the lawlessness, criminality and corruption that seem to have spread so virulently throughout this...
  • Why Progressives Chose Bernie Sanders Over Elizabeth Warren

    Last summer, when Elizabeth Warren was bringing out thousands of people at mega rallies who would wait long into the night in seemingly never-ending selfie lines, progressive groups were torn. They saw both Warren and her fellow presidential candidate Bernie Sanders as allies for their causes. Sanders had inherited goodwill from his 2016 run against Hillary Clinton. But Warren was the charismatic star on late night TV who had fought the big banks during the recession, and, notably, the politician progressives had initially tried to draft into the 2016 primary as an opponent to Clinton before Sanders entered the race....

    It wasn’t until August 8th, 2019, months into the unofficial start of the Democratic presidential primary, that Naomi Zikmund-Fisher threw her money behind Elizabeth Warren. The 49-year-old social worker from Superior Township, Mich., had supported Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in the 2016 primary. But in Warren, she saw something different: a candidate who had translated Sanders’ progressive talking points into tangible policies, and one who might actually win. She deposited $2,800 – the maximum donation an individual can give a candidate during a primary – into Warren’s campaign. “I thought she had a good chance,” Zikmund-Fisher says. “I gave to...

    The question that had come so close to fading into irrelevance is back: Will I ever see a woman elected president? As Senator Elizabeth Warren became the fifth woman to exit the 2020 presidential race, women are coming to terms with the fact that, for the 244th straight year, the person America chooses to lead it in November will be a man. For Democrats, the future is fraught as the race builds towards a showdown between former vice president Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders, which will then give way to a messy battle between the eventual nominee and President...

    WASHINGTON - - “Lack of talent.” Unlikable. “Mean.” President Donald Trump laced into former Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren on Friday, insisting that sexism wasn’t to blame for the end of the Massachusetts senator’s presidential campaign. Speaking to reporters as he signed an emergency $8.3 billion funding package to help tackle the coronavirus outbreak, Trump was asked whether he thought sexism had anything to do with Warren’s departure from the Democratic presidential race. “No, I think lack of talent was her problem. She has a tremendous lack of talent,” Trump responded. The president commended her debate performances, saying she “was a...

    Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren dropped out of the 2020 presidential race Thursday, ending a once front-running bid that never achieved its sky-high potential once voting actually began. Answering the "what happened" question is never a simple thing. Voters make up their minds for lots of different reasons -- some of which they are willing to articulate and some they simply won't. But generally speaking, there seem to be three reasons why Warren didn't get to where she wanted to go. 1) She peaked too soon: If the Iowa caucuses were October 3, Warren could have won going away. National polling...

    Once upon a time, it seemed possible that the Democratic Party would nominate a candidate who wasn't another older white man. Not anymore. Is there a better time than the start of Women's History Month to tell women that the latest woman’s bid for the presidency is, well, history? We began the race for the Democratic nomination with a record six women candidates, and now we’re down to - well, not counting the unviable, unreliable Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D- Hawaii, who was always less likely to win this thing than anyone but Marianne Williamson - zero. Remember that one flickering...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren is suspending her presidential campaign, a source familiar with the decision tells NBC News, a bitter blow for a senator who was long seen by prominent Democrats as headed for the White House. The decision ends a frantic year of campaigning for a candidate who branded herself as a progressive fighter from humble beginnings who was ready to take on a broken and corrupt system.

    Will Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) remain in the 2020 race after Super Tuesday? That's the question pundits were asking after the senator's disappointing night, as she not only failed to notch a single Democratic primary win but also came in third place in her home state of Massachusets. Politico reports the mood in her campaign is "bleak" as officials "wonder whether a path forward exists." Prior to polls closing on Super Tuesday, Warren had announced several new campaign stops, and as results were coming in, she sent out a new fundraising pitch. "There are six more primaries just one week...

    Thousands of people are continuing to pledge their support for Elizabeth Warren as their choice for the Democratic presidential nomination despite hugely disappointing Super Tuesday results. The term "Warren Democrat" was one of the top trending topics on Twitter early Wednesday morning as social media users continue to support and appreciate Warren despite the race for the nomination looking set to now be between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. In a crushing blow for her campaign, Warren barely registered in most of the 14 elections during Super Tuesday. Even worse, she is forecast to finish third place in her home...

    It was the night before Super Tuesday, and Elizabeth Warren was hanging in there. Bernie Sanders had just held a massive Los Angeles rally with Public Enemy, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar had just dropped out and endorsed Joe Biden, but Warren was doing what she always does: playing the same Motown-inspired soundtrack, handing out the same “Persist” signs, giving another speech that sounded like a history lecture. Six months ago, when this was all working, Warren was the candidate of the head as well as the heart. Back then, she was widely considered a Democratic frontrunner, and it all...

    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...

    WASHINGTON -- Beto O'Rourke tried it. Kamala Harris tried it. Cory Booker tried it. And one by one, they all flamed out. Now, Elizabeth Warren is pitching herself as the Democratic candidate who can unify the party's progressive and moderate wings, a play that could lead her down the same bridge to nowhere, unless her message can quickly find some resonance. The Massachusetts senator has pleaded with voters not to pick a divisive nominee who risks paving the way for President Donald Trump's re-election, telling a devoted crowd of supporters Tuesday in Manchester, New Hampshire, that she was Democrats' "best...

    Elizabeth Warren’s campaign is arguing that her top rivals have flaws that will be exposed over time in the Democratic presidential primary and that their White House bids aren’t built for the long haul like hers is. A lengthy memo from Warren campaign manager Roger Lau, obtained Tuesday, draws the sharpest contrasts yet between the Massachusetts senator and her rivals, something the candidate has mostly refrained from doing personally. It suggests Bernie Sanders, the race’s other strong progressive, has a “ceiling” for support, while former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign could soon collapse. It argues that Pete Buttigieg, the former...

    CONCORD, NH -- Two days before a once-mission-critical primary in a state she neighbors, Sen. Elizabeth Warren - typically exceptional at holding a room - had not finished speaking when something unusual happened: Dozens of voters began filtering out of the middle school gym she had reserved. Campaign staff strained to enlist prospective volunteers on their way to their cars. “Someone, anyone,” one organizer called out as departing guests stepped around him. And when Warren wound toward her big finish, the go-out-and-get-’em kicker in these urgent final hours, her mind wandered accidentally to home. “It’s up to you, Massachusetts, to...

    CONCORD, N.H. -- Needing a boost in a New Hampshire primary critical to her campaign’s future, Sen. Elizabeth Warren deployed a slew of major surrogates across the state in a last push for Tuesday’s vote. While many of the events were smaller canvassing kickoffs, Warren gathered the three co-chairs of her campaign in Rundlett Middle School gym in front of a crowd that started lining up two hours in advance. Reps. Ayanna Pressley, Deb Haaland and Katie Porter — all freshmen in the House who’ve made headlines in the first year of their tenures — pushed the message that Warren...

    MANCHESTER, NH -- Elizabeth Warren isn’t struggling like Joe Biden. But she isn’t soaring, like Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders. Instead, the Massachusetts senator enters a critical stretch of the campaign relegated to the murky middle. She has to convince voters she has a viable path to the nomination, even if that path is unclear. Her campaign has spent millions of dollars flexing organizational muscle throughout the country, but she’s lagging in her own backyard ahead of Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary. “I think it’s going to be tough if she doesn’t do well,” said Neil Levesque, executive director of the...
