‘A Woman Can’t Win in 2020’, According to Bernie Sanders in 2018 Meeting with Liz Warren

Things are getting desperate within the Democratic race for 2020.

While some of the Democratic candidates in the 2020 race continues to toe the party line about uniting to defeat Donald Trump in the coming election, others are fine-tuning their frustration and aiming it toward one another with aplomb.

Much of this added animosity arises from the looming pressure of the Iowa caucuses which take place in less than a month’s time, and will leave a permanent mark on the entire race as a whole.  If candidates don’t get their parting shots in now, a poor showing in Iowa will cast all future mudslinging in a desperate light.

That is perhaps why Elizabeth Warren’s campaign is releasing a damning statement regarding a meeting they had with the Bernie Sanders campaign back in 2018.

The stakes were high when Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren met at Warren’s apartment in Washington, DC, one evening in December 2018. The longtime friends knew that they could soon be running against each other for president.

The two agreed that if they ultimately faced each other as presidential candidates, they should remain civil and avoid attacking one another, so as not to hurt the progressive movement. They also discussed how to best take on President Donald Trump, and Warren laid out two main reasons she believed she would be a strong candidate: She could make a robust argument about the economy and earn broad support from female voters.

Sanders responded that he did not believe a woman could win.

The description of that meeting is based on the accounts of four people: two people Warren spoke with directly soon after the encounter, and two people familiar with the meeting.

Sanders’ team is denying that the comment was ever made, and pointing to the Vermont Senator’s support of Hillary Clinton in 2016 as evidence that this couldn’t be true.
