Too little, too late: Sanders condemns his supporters' 'ugly, personal attacks' against Warren

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said Wednesday that he is “disgusted” by any personal attacks his supporters or anyone else has lobbed at his presidential primary opponent Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow asked Sanders about attacks some of his supporters have made, tweeting images of snakes and even calling for Warren to be challenged in a primary in her next Massachusetts Senate election.

Sanders told Maddow he was “actually disgusted” and “aghast” by online vitriol directed at Warren...


So now that Warren is on her way toward exiting the campaign, Bernie is shocked, absolutely shocked, that a hardy band of his core supporters has been heaping abuse on her non-friggin-stop. This has only been going on his entire campaign, as if he didn’t know, and as supporters of any other candidate who got on Bernie World’s threat radar can tell you. But now that he wants Warren’s support he’s disgusted. Ok. Me too.

Pro-women PAC Emily's List endorses Elizabeth Warren

Emily's List on Monday endorsed Sen. Elizabeth Warren — one of only two women left in the presidential race, along with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, after Sen. Amy Klobuchar suspended her campaign.

Why it matters: Emily's List is an influential pro-choice PAC dedicated to supporting female Democratic candidates. It helped elect a record-breaking number of women to Congress during the 2018 midterms.

What they're saying:

"From the day I first sat across the table from her, discussing why she should run for Senate, I knew that Elizabeth Warren was exactly the kind of person we need in office. She has run her campaign the way she has governed: with a clear vision for how to build a better America, a plan to put power in the hands of the people, and a campaign that has stood up for and lived progressive values. As she often notes, she is running for president because that’s what girls do — and she has been an inspiration for women and girls across the country.”

— Emily's List president Stephanie Schriock

AFT President Randi Weingarten to endorse Elizabeth Warren in Houston tonight

Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers, is expected to endorse Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren for president at a rally Saturday night in Houston, according to a source familiar with the endorsement.

Weingarten is backing Warren in her personal capacity. The 1.7 million-member AFT has encouraged local unions and members to support either Warren, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders or former Vice President Joe Biden.

The endorsement could provide a jolt of support for Warren ahead of Super Tuesday, when voters will decided how to award roughly one-third of the delegates to the Democratic National Convention.

Progressive group leader describes why Warren would be better than Sanders

Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC), offered an argument in a Wednesday interview on SiriusXM Radio why Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who his group is supporting, would be a more effective president than Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

...He offered an anecdote about interactions Green and his group had with Sanders in 2015, when Sanders was backing an infrastructure funding proposal but ended up introducing a bill with little political support. "On January 21, 2015, myself and my co-founder, Stephanie Taylor, and some folks from our legislative team met with Bernie Sanders ... and we showed him some polling that we had done, the Big Ideas Poll, showing that so many big, progressive ideas were popular," Green said. He noted that one of the questions in the poll related to infrastructure reform, which led Sanders to inform him that that he was introducing a "trillion dollar infrastructure bill" (Rebuild America Act of 2015) the following week.

"After the meeting we begged his office, 'Can you please delay this for a couple weeks? Let us help you lobby for co-sponsors. Let us help you get other grassroots groups on board.'" Green continued. "But he was insistent. He must introduce his bill on Tuesday. And sure enough, at the press conference he had one co-sponsor, he had one main endorsing group, the engineers," Green said. "That was January 2015 and the entire Congress of 2015 and 2016, there were zero other co-sponsors that got on board and almost no movement around the bill."

Green then shifted to the accomplishments of Warren, saying "when I think about that versus what Elizabeth Warren did with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, where she had an idea, she did the hard work of organizing it on the inside of Congress."

Stephanie Ruhle's attempt to roll Warren surrogate Katie Porter fails miserably

EW attacked Bloomberg and not Sanders, why, for the love of my network bosses, why?!?!?

Porter’s systematic dismantling of this line of attack is a thing to behold:
