Buttigieg is gaining in Iowa and New Hampshire , stealing Warren’s support…
Elizabeth Warren will blast Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg for continuing to hold fundraisers with the ultra-wealthy, while calling them “naive” about the fight ahead, according to excerpts of a Thursday speech provided to POLITICO.
“Unlike some candidates for the Democratic nomination, I’m not betting my agenda on the naive hope that if Democrats adopt Republican critiques of progressive policies or make vague calls for unity that somehow the wealthy and well-connected will stand down,” Warren plans to say at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College, in what the campaign considers an attempt to draw a contrast with her rivals.
“Unlike some candidates for the Democratic nomination, I’m not counting on Republican politicians having an epiphany and suddenly supporting the kinds of tax increases on the rich or big business accountability they have opposed under Democratic presidents for a generation.”
The direct engagement with Buttigieg and Biden is part of a tactical shift for Warren in recent weeks as she’s stalled or dipped in national and early-state polls. The Massachusetts senator had resisted going after her Democratic rivals directly, preferring to try to deflect their attacks rather than counter-punch. She and her campaign worried that hitting other well-liked Democrats would repel voters and make them unlikely to ever support her.
The campaign felt validated in that approach, given that Warren is usually the second choice among supporters of other candidates. But as she tries to regain the momentum it captured over the summer and early fall, Warren has stepped up her criticism of other top Democrats….
