Since becoming a 2020 presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren has made all these claims about the horrors of billionaire donors, political action committees (PACs), and other similar entities.
The Massachusetts senator also has the tendency to point the finger and scold other candidates when she disagrees with their manners of campaign funding. In fact, Warren’s campaign purity tests landed her in disputes with fellow rival Pete Buttigieg on multiple primary debate stages.
In keeping with political par for the course, Warren is under fire for saying one thing and then doing precisely the opposite. The senator’s strong condemnation of super PACs has not stopped her from using these committees as her campaign continues to sink. Fox News notes that Warren’s prior censure of PACs has considerably changed as she switches up her narrative in the hopes to regain some momentum in this election.
A Closer Look at Warren’s New Take on PACs
The Massachusetts senator now claims that she will only sever ties with super PACs once other 2020 Democrats do the same. Yesterday in North Las Vegas, Warren stated that she will “lead the charge” in PAC boycotts, but that “it can’t be the case” of some candidates abstaining from PACs while others don’t.
However, this position is a far cry from Warren’s remarks on PACs merely months ago. In keeping with the leftist way, the senator has repeatedly touted herself as morally superior, stating that campaigns are inherently contaminated when backed by PACs and other similar entities. Of course, in light of the significant decline that Warren’s campaign has experienced, she’s doing whatever she thinks will keep her candidacy alive.
More on Warren’s Campaign
Over the past couple of months, Warren’s presidential campaign has stagnated in a variety of ways. Aside from taking considerable nosedives in polls, she also has yet to win a single caucus or primary election. With the Nevada caucus coming up, Bernie Sanders remains in the lead and there’s nothing to indicate that Warren will topple him anytime soon.
The most positive press that Warren has earned as of late occurred during this week’s Democrat debate in Las Vegas. This debate garnered at least 20 million views with many observers noting how strongly Warren challenged Mike Bloomberg along with his questionable remarks on racial minorities, farmers, factory workers, and his binding NDAs on women who work for him.
