At Tuesday night’s Democratic debate in Des Moines, all eyes will be on Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as their once seemingly warm relationship has quickly turned icy.
The Massachusetts senator on Monday night confirmed news reports that her progressive rival told her at a private meeting over a year ago that he did not believe a woman could win in 2020, a development that threatens to upend the nominating contest just weeks before voting commences.
In a statement released by the Warren campaign, the senator responded by saying: “Among the topics that came up was what would happen if Democrats nominated a female candidate. I thought a woman could win; he disagreed,” Warren wrote, in part. “I have no interest in discussing this private meeting any further because Bernie and I have far more in common than our differences on punditry.”
