  ‘Do I see a feud brewing?’: Trump jumps in on Bernie-Warren brawl Warren hit back at Sanders this weekend after his campaign distributed anti-Warren talking points to volunteers.“Bernie Sander’s [sic] volunteers are trashing Elizabeth ‘Pocahontus’ Warren.

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa — A nearly yearlong run of good will between two of the leading progressives in the 2020 presidential race, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders, appears to be evaporating in the run-up to the Iowa caucuses.

On Sunday, Ms. Warren said she was “disappointed” that Mr. Sanders’s campaign had been using a call script for volunteers that suggested she was appealing mainly to highly educated voters and would not be able to expand the Democratic Party coalition.

  Bernie Sanders told Elizabeth Warren in private 2018 meeting that a woman can't win, sources say The stakes were high when Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren met at Warren's apartment in Washington, DC, one evening in December 2018. The longtime friends knew that they could soon be running against each other for president. The two agreed that if they ultimately faced each other as presidential candidates, they should remain civil and avoid attacking one another, so as not to hurt the progressive movement.

Bernie Sanders has floated an idea that could provide his lagging White House bid a bit of extra mojo near the end of the primary season: naming Elizabeth Warren as his running mate. It is incumbent upon Clinton to reach out to the roughly 7 million voters who have backed the Sanders campaign, he

“I was disappointed to hear that Bernie is sending his volunteers out to trash me,” Ms. Warren said. “I hope Bernie reconsiders and turns his campaign in a different direction.”

After months of studiously avoiding any negative words about Mr. Sanders, Ms. Warren went on to cite the divisiveness of the 2016 primary between Mr. Sanders and Hillary Clinton, suggesting it helped President Trump. “We all saw the impact of the factionalism in 2016, and we can’t have a repeat of that,” she warned. “Democrats need to unite our party and that means pulling in all parts of the Democratic coalition.”

The volunteer call script was first reported by Politico and its authenticity was not disputed by the Sanders campaign. It begins: “I like Elizabeth Warren. [optional] In fact, she’s my second choice. But here’s my concern about her. The people who support her are highly-educated, more affluent people who are going to show up and vote Democratic no matter what.”

Warren Says Sanders Told Her a Woman Could Not Win the Presidency

  Warren Says Sanders Told Her a Woman Could Not Win the Presidency Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts said on Monday night that Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont told her in 2018 he did not think a woman could win the presidency.

When Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) confessed that even he did not have a way to pay for the plan he devised and Warren signed onto, Biden’s team pounced. In a written statement, communications director Kate Bedingfield declared, “It’s alarming that Senator Sanders , who has been

It goes on: “She’s bringing no new bases into the Democratic Party.”

A top Warren supporter in Iowa, State Senator Claire Celsi, strongly disputed that argument and said she was unsurprised that the Sanders campaign was leveling it. “Doesn’t surprise me about Bernie,” she said. “He went straight to the gutter with Hillary. More of the same.”

The Sanders campaign declined to comment. But his national press secretary, Briahna Joy Gray, wrote on Twitter that while “Warren has plenty to recommend her,” only “Only Bernie’s volunteer army, fundraising numbers, and popularity with a diverse working-class coalition can compete” with Mr. Trump.

Mr. Sanders and Ms. Warren are the two leading liberals in the primary, and a Des Moines Register/CNN poll over the weekend showed Mr. Sanders with his first lead in Iowa, at 20 percent, followed closely by Ms. Warren at 17 percent. Behind them were Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., with 16 percent and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. with 15 percent.

Dems should celebrate Sanders’ and Warren’s conscious uncoupling

  Dems should celebrate Sanders’ and Warren’s conscious uncoupling In the hours before Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are set to take the final debate stage before the Iowa caucuses in February, what began as a mutual protection pact between the two progressive candidates for president has devolved into a he-said, she-said war of the far-left worlds. To which I say, it’s about time. And if you’re a supporter of either Warren or Sanders, or any other Democrat for that matter, you should welcome this development with open arms. The sooner there is a strong frontrunner in the Democratic primary, the better positioned he or she is to take on President Trump.

Ms. Warren’s campaign has begun to project her as a “unity candidate” — “We need someone who will excite every part of the Democratic Party,” she told reporters Sunday — and her latest big-name endorser, the former housing secretary Julián Castro, has sharpened that message as a cudgel against her rivals.

“About 25 percent of the folks out there, when you look at Democrats, about 25 percent, for instance, say they would be unhappy if Vice President Biden was the nominee. About 25 percent say that they would be unhappy if Senator Sanders were the nominee,” Mr. Castro said in Marshalltown on Sunday. “The person that scores the best on that, who people are good with, that they would get out there and vote if they’re the nominee, is Elizabeth Warren.”

Still, Mr. Sanders is not the first to try to pigeonhole Ms. Warren as the candidate of the elites. Mr. Biden did so last fall, grating on Ms. Warren’s allies. In a Medium post in November, Mr. Biden accused Ms. Warren, though not by name, of engaging in a “‘my way or the highway’ approach to politics.”

“It’s condescending to the millions of Democrats who have a different view,” Mr. Biden wrote at the time. “It’s representative of an elitism that working and middle-class people do not share: ‘We know best; you know nothing.’”

On Sunday, Ms. Warren’s campaign and supporters pushed back at the idea that she had an affluent-only coalition.

“I earned my GED before going to a state school and I am proud to support Elizabeth Warren!” Roger Lau, Ms. Warren’s campaign manager, wrote on Twitter.

Jayapal told CBS News that she chose Sanders over Warren because of a shared history of organizing she has with the Vermont senator."At the end of the day, I think for me it came down to the fact that Bernie Sanders is like me: an organizer," Jayapal explained. "He believes the change that we need is bold and big, and institutional, but it doesn't happen without building a broader movement.
