  Elizabeth Warren Says Bernie Sanders Sent Volunteers ‘Out to Trash Me’ 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. “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.

The hashtag #RefundWarren trended on Twitter as supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders encouraged anyone who had donated to Senator Elizabeth Warren's 2020 campaign through the ActBlue platform to request a refund.

Some Twitter users posted screenshots purporting to show ActBlue processing refunds of their donations to Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat. Several screenshots of refund request emails appeared to show ActBlue stating that they were "currently experiencing high volumes."

‘Do I see a feud brewing?’: Trump jumps in on Bernie-Warren brawl

  ‘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. Everybody knows her campaign is dead and want her potential voters,” Trump tweeted Monday morning.

While some claimed to be requesting refunds, a number of Warren supporters using the hashtag said it had encouraged them to donate more money to her campaign.

It was not immediately clear how many Warren donor refunds ActBlue is processing or if the refunds were offset by higher donations. Newsweek asked ActBlue for comment by email and will update this article if one is provided.

The actor and musician Greg Cipes tweeted using the hashtag to say Warren is "revealing herself as a fake, not so great politician, trying to use dirty below the belt cheap tactics to hurt a real public servant of the People like Bernie. Her shenanigans Ain't gonna help boost her failing campaign. She's just another politician."

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.

Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren ’s “nonaggression” pact appears to be straining against the weight of the fast-approaching Iowa caucus more than a year after agreeing not to attack each other during the Democratic primary so as to avoid harming the progressive movement.

Bernie Sanders is said to have once told Elizabeth Warren that he believes a woman cannot Warren reportedly told Sanders that she disagreed with his assessment, arguing that a woman can Do I believe a woman can win in 2020? Of course! After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 3

But the comedian Sean Kent tweeted: "#RefundWarren is a joke. Bernie said something f**ked up and he should own it. Also the idea that thousands of Berners donated to her campaign is hilarious. They only give money to their overlord."

While some claimed to be requesting refunds, Warren supporters said the hashtag encouraged them to donate more money to her campaign.

Newsweek has also asked the Warren and Sanders campaigns for comment and will update this article if any is provided.

The #RefundWarren campaign erupted on Twitter after Warren issued a statement confirming recent reports that Sanders, a Vermont independent, had said to her back in 2018 he did not believe a woman could win the presidency. Sanders, however, has flatly denied saying it.

"Bernie and I met for more than two hours in December 2018 to discuss the 2020 election, our past work together and our shared goals: Beating Donald Trump, taking back our government from the wealthy and well-connected, and building an economy that works for everyone," Warren said in a statement, according to The New York Times.

Sanders' wife on feud with Warren: 'This discussion is over'

  Sanders' wife on feud with Warren: 'This discussion is over' WASHINGTON (AP) — Jane O'Meara Sanders, the wife of Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, has a clear message about the simmering dispute between her husband and Elizabeth Warren: It's over. O'Meara Sanders defended her husband's integrity during a Wednesday interview, but she declined to attack Warren — or inflame the feud in any way — a day after the Massachusetts senator reiterated during a nationally televised debate that Sanders, a Vermont senator, told her privately that a woman couldn't defeat President Donald Trump."I think that this discussion is over," O'Meara Sanders told The Associated Press.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Elizabeth Warren said Monday that fellow Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders told her he didn’ t think a woman could win the White House during a private meeting between the two in 2018. The Massachusetts senator said in a statement that during the two-hour

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

"Among the topics that came up was what would happen if Democrats nominated a female candidate. I thought a woman could win; he disagreed. I have no interest in discussing this private meeting any further because Bernie and I have far more in common than our differences on punditry.

"I'm in this race to talk about what's broken in this country and how to fix it—and that's what I'm going to continue to do. I know Bernie is in the race for the same reason. We have been friends and allies in this fight for a long time, and I have no doubt we will continue to work together to defeat Donald Trump and put our government on the side of the people."

CNN had first reported the comments Sanders allegedly made to Warren about a woman's ability to win the presidency, citing several anonymous sources with knowledge of the conversation between the two.

"It is ludicrous to believe that at the same meeting where Elizabeth Warren told me she was going to run for president, I would tell her that a woman couldn't win," Sanders said in a statement to CNN.

"It's sad that, three weeks before the Iowa caucus and a year after that private conversation, staff who weren't in the room are lying about what happened. What I did say that night was that Donald Trump is a sexist, a racist and a liar who would weaponize whatever he could.

"Do I believe a woman can win in 2020? Of course! After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 3 million votes in 2016."

The RealClearPolitics national polling average for the Democratic 2020 race has Warren in third place at 16 percent, Sanders in second place at 19.8 percent, and former Joe Biden leading on 28.3 percent. However, the early primary states don't favor the former Vice President, according to this chart of polling averages for Iowa, New Hampshire and the U.S. provided by Statista.

Rep. warns not electing progressive could lead to another Trump .
Jayapal endorsed Bernie Sanders for president Sunday, a notable win for the Sanders campaign over fellow progressive Senator Elizabeth Warren. 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.
