Despite her denials, all signs seem to indicate that pro-abortion Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-MA, is preparing for a presidential run in 2020.
Republicans say they would love to make Warren the national face of the Democratic Party, arguing that she’s too far left for most of the country.
“Having the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts run in the Democrat primary and be the Democrat nominee would not make me unhappy,” said Chip Saltsman, a GOP strategist who managed former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s 2008 presidential campaign.
“If an Elizabeth Warren type is the nominee, Democrats write off whole regions of the country automatically,” he added, pointing to 2020 swing states North Carolina and Virginia as states that would likely go Republican if Warren ran.
Trump told Fox News in an interview last month that Warren’s nomination would be “a dream come true,” predicting that “she would lose so badly” in the general election.
