  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.

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.

The leading liberal presidential contenders have been trying to de-escalate the feud almost since Warren inexplicably made the explosive allegation on the eve of this week's debate, claiming that Sanders questioned the viability of a female presidential candidate during a private conversation in 2018. The subsequent attempts to tamp down the conflict, from the candidates on the debate stage Tuesday night and from their chief surrogates on Wednesday, reflect the dangerous stakes surrounding a fight that threatens to tear apart the Democratic Party's progressive base less than three weeks before presidential primary voting begins.

O'Meara Sanders said their campaign has no interest in promoting divisions “like Trump does by gender, race or ethnicity."

“I’m not attacking Elizabeth Warren in any way, shape or form on this,” O'Meara Sanders continued. “My message is Bernie is trying to bring people together.”
