Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren on Thursday declined to disavow a new super PAC that has earmarked $1 million to back her candidacy, an apparent reversal from her vigorous opposition to the outside spending groups that have become central to American politics. No, she had to scramble up her best ever moment on the campaign trail with another Dreadful Elizabeth Warren-ness Seizure of Stupid that once again exposes her to ridicule and legitimate accusations of having no moral core, other than the pursuit of raw power.
A new Nevada poll ahead of the state's Democratic caucus Saturday isn't telling us anything we don't already know - progressive Sen.
"If all the candidates want to get rid of super PACs, count me in", Warren told reporters in Nevada.
During her interview, Klobuchar couldn't say anything about the Lopez Obrador himself, nor could she identify his administration's policies except "that they are our neighbors and regardless of who the leader is, it is someone that I will work with". But that's how it has to be. "It can't be the case that a bunch of people keep them and only one or two don't", Warren said.
MSNBC's Chris Matthews, in a post-debate interview Wednesday night with senator and 2020 Democratic candidate Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), noted his surprise at the attacks on her which came from former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg - asking the senator, "Why was he pounding you?" The Massachusetts senator boasted during the February 7 debate that she and fellow Democratic presidential contender Sen.
Buttigieg took 16.9%; former Vice President Joe Biden had 16.1%; Sen.
The polls were held before Wednesday evening's raucous night's primetime Democratic presidential nomination debate in Las Vegas.
She was responding to a tweet of a statement by Warren in an email that she would accept no Super PAC campaign support. "We have a problem in this country: Money has too much influence on our political leaders", she wrote in a blog post previous year.
"We reached the point a few weeks ago that all the men who were still in this race and on the debate stage all had either super PACs or they were multibillionaires and could just, you know, rummage around in their sock drawers to find enough money to be able to fund a campaign". The super PAC claimed that although they support the senator's stance on dark money funded politics, she must first win the presidency before reforming the political fundraising system.
Super PACs are a political action committee that can raise unlimited sums of money and then spend money, with no limit, to advocate for or against political candidates.
Sanders has opened a commanding lead in recent national polls, leading the Democratic group of primary candidates by double digits in several recent surveys before crucial nominating contests taking place in coming weeks like the Nevada caucuses, SC primary and Super Tuesday.
