Elizabeth Warren reflects on 2020 loss and gender in new memoir

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)Weeks before Elizabeth Warren launched her first senatorial campaign, she made a call to a woman she said was a longtime Democratic activist in Massachusetts. She recalls telling the woman she was going to run for Senate.

"Martha lost," Warren says the woman responded, according to her new memoir. The woman was referencing Martha Coakley, who was the first female Senate nominee of a major party in Massachusetts, but lost two statewide campaigns.

"Oof," Warren responded.

That's just one of many anecdotes the Massachusetts senator recalls in her new memoir out this week where she reflects on gender and loss in the 2020 presidential campaign. She also details her countless plans that she says would help middle class Americans, something she became known for during the campaign.

1. Warren won, too. Biden has tapped into her economic policy vision

and influence. His economic team is filled with Warren’s policy wonks.

Warren is happy to have policy wins and won’t see a need to run again. She is all about action and results over personal glory. Always has been.

Biden won. Warren won. America’s working families win.
