Elizabeth Warren is believed to be the next candidate to take the lead once Joe Biden fizzles out after the next debate. His consistent gaffes seem to be more than just mistakes, but symptoms of a detached man whose popularity was largely due to his association with Obama.
Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, who has supported Warren’s Senator run in the past and is now supporting Biden’s run for President, is criticizing Warren’s change in attitude towards the millionaires that she courted in the past.
Rendell does not say she is a “hypocrite” for changing strategies, but specifically because she had a reported $10.4 million leftover from her Senator run, and without disclosing that, she is pretending that her campaign is strictly grassroots.
Rendell does not like that those that helped Warren succeed in the past are now vilified in her speeches.
Fox News reported on Rendell’s statements.
As detailed in a New York Times report, Warren’s Democratic presidential bid has featured a grassroots approach to fundraising that’s considerably different than her Senate campaigns. While she’s shunned lavish fundraisers from wealthy donors this time around, the article detailed how she still benefits from having raised millions from them in years past. Her 2020 campaign reportedly is boosted by $10.4 million in leftover donations from her 2018 Senate campaign.
“Can you spell hypocrite?” Rendell, a Democrat, told the Times. Rendell is backing former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 race, though he gave $4,000 to Warren’s 2018 Senate campaign. He told the Times that he also brought in other donors for an expensive fundraiser at Philadelphia’s high-end Barclay Prime restaurant.
Warren’s campaign did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
Rendell similarly co-hosted a fundraiser for Biden, only for Warren to blast it as “a swanky private fundraiser for wealthy donors,” Rendell noted.
“She didn’t have any trouble taking our money the year before,” he told the Times. “All of a sudden, we were bad guys and power brokers and influence-peddlers. In 2018, we were wonderful.”
This isn’t the first time Elizabeth Warren has misrepresented herself in order to look more appealing in the quest for validation.
Elizabeth Warren is a very wealthy woman, who has used her influence and position in government to amass millions by working as a professor or a senator. Now those that has allegedly turned her back on those that helped in the past, they are starting to speak up.
