Warren: ‘Marry one woman. Assuming you can find one’

  Warren: ‘Marry one woman. Assuming you can find one’ At CNN’s Equality Town Hall, Senator Elizabeth Warren was asked how she would respond to someone who says marriage is between one man and one woman. She delivered quite the burn in response.“You’re on the campaign trail and a supporter approaches you and says, ‘Senator, I’m old-fashioned and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman.’ What’s your response?” Cox said.

Elizabeth Warren , his rival for the progressive vote. AOC 's endorsement will definitely have some measurable impact on both of their campaigns. You can tell how it already has had an impact by the way her supporters are trying to downplay it.

INDIANOLA, Iowa — Elizabeth Warren shrugged off Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's endorsement snub after Bernie Sanders beat her to the liberal firebrand's support.

"I am a fan of the congresswoman. She's done some terrific work. We have worked together, and I know that once this primary is over we're all going to be on the same side," the Massachusetts senator said in Iowa on Sunday.

Ocasio-Cortez, a New York House Democrat, was wooed by both Warren and Sanders, a Senate colleague from Vermont, as the pair vie for the right to challenge President Trump in 2020. In one video, Warren and Ocasio-Cortez joked about Game of Thrones.

Bernie Sanders draws contrast with 'capitalist' Elizabeth Warren

  Bernie Sanders draws contrast with 'capitalist' Elizabeth Warren The Vermont senator has lost ground in the 2020 Democratic primary polls recently to his Massachusetts colleague"There are differences between Elizabeth and myself," Sanders, I-Vt., said in an interview with ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl that will air Sunday morning. "Elizabeth, I think, as you know, has said that she is a capitalist through her bones. I'm not.

AOC is most popular among voters who support Warren , which makes her endorsement of Sanders particularly unfortunate for the Massachusetts lawmaker. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is endorsing Bernie Sanders this weekend, and polling shows that could be a hit to Elizabeth Warren .

Elizabeth Ann Warren (née Herring; born June 22, 1949) is an American politician and former academic serving as the senior United States Senator from Massachusetts since 2013.

The trio are considered to be the driving force behind the liberal faction of the party but there are differences. Sanders has pushed socialist policies since his years as mayor in Burlington, Vermont, from 1981-89, as a House member for 16 years and a senator since 2007. Ocasio-Cortez is a self-described "democratic socialist," and Warren still considers herself to be a capitalist.

At his "comeback" rally in New York on Saturday, held after an extended break following a heart attack, Ocasio-Cortez, 30, cast Sanders, 78, as the father of the liberal movement, which is based on "big, structural change."

"We right now have one of the best Democratic presidential primary fields in a generation and much of that is thanks to the work that Bernie Sanders has done in his entire life," Ocasio-Cortez said.

Warren is on a three-day swing of Iowa, the first-in-the-nation voting state. Her first stop on Sunday was at Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa.

Warren says she will soon release plan to fund 'Medicare for All' .
The Democratic presidential candidate has come under fire from 2020 rivals for declining to get into specifics about how she'll pay for her plan."What I see though is that we need to talk about the cost and I plan over the next few weeks to put out a plan that talks about, specifically, the cost of Medicare for All and specifically how we pay for it," the Massachusetts senator said during a campaign stop in Indianola, Iowa.
