Elizabeth Warren Withdraws From Prez Race

  • 15 Comments

UPDATE #2: We completely agree:

UPDATE:

—–

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.)

New York Times reporting, and after Super Tuesday it was inevitable:

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts plans to drop out of the presidential race on Thursday and will inform her staff of her plans later this morning, according to a person close to her, ending a run defined by an avalanche of policy plans that aimed to pull the Democratic Party to the left and appealed to enough voters to make her briefly a front-runner last fall, but that proved unable to translate excitement from elite progressives into backing from the party’s more working-class and diverse base.

Though her support had eroded by Super Tuesday, in her final weeks as a candidate she effectively drove the centrist billionaire, former New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, out of the race with debate performances that flashed her evident skills and political potential.

No word yet on an endorsement from Sen. Elizabeth Warren, but her choice now of whether to stand by her close(r) ideological ally Sen. Bernie Sanders or the rapidly-coalescing support for Sen. Joe Biden as a more electable alternative could factor more than her performance in any of the heretofore primaries. Stay tuned for updates.

  1. Not saying this is likely, but I wish she could stay neutral right now and persuade her followers to do what they think is best. But I do recall her spinning questions about Bernie toward anti-Bloomberg, which is probably a hint as to what she'll do if she has to declare.

     

  2. Morning Consult went back to their surveys done prior to Bloomberg's departure, but after Buttigieg and Klobuchar and then sent me an email — Warren's voters split second choice 43% Sanders, 36% Biden. 

    It would "amount to a 5 percentage-point increase for Sanders’ first choice-support if her supporters move where they are inclined to go and a 4-point boost for Biden,"

    1. that math only aligns if

      the polled were Warren supporters in any of the remaining states and were broken down by states that matter.

      There are some delegate opportunities remaining that will not make any difference at all. 

       

    1. V – this is a great read.  Keep your shirt.  You may need it someday: 

      Inside the Secret List of Demands Warren Gave Hillary

      The constant interference sometimes frustrated and annoyed the former secretary of State and her team. 

      “It was kind of a pain in the ass to be thinking about her all the time,” recalled one Clinton transition official.

      But Clinton’s team listened — aware of both Warren’s credibility among progressives and her willingness to use her bully pulpit to condemn members of her own party. Even more acutely, they felt the ever-present threat that she’d throw her own hat into the ring.

      “I think if the outreach hadn’t been done then she might have felt obligated to run,” a Clinton official explained of their approach.

  3. The Hill:

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Joe Biden: “No matter how many Washington insiders tell you to support him, nominating their fellow Washington insider will not meet this moment. Nominating a man who says we do not need any fundamental change in this country will not meet this moment.”

      1. Biden has a solution for voters looking for something other than what he's offering.

  4. I'm sad to see Warren didn't capture more votes. She is so damn smart. I was reminded that while her appeal is strong to me, my personal demographic might not be representative of the country.

    I would have liked her to stay for one more debate, and turn her fire on Trump. She is the one who could most successfully take Trump down in a debate.

    And, I still have hail mary hopes that the two old white guys left in the race decide to bag it, or the Party decides to select Warren.

    I was a fan of Sanders, but now, I am turning into a strong critic. I have to agree with Paul Krugman's article the NYT today, that Sanders' maximalism is the wrong strategy; you've got to pick your battles and be strategic. Warren could do that, but got suckered into trying for Sanders' M4A, instead of the slippery slope of Public Option.
