Elizabeth Warren Won’t Be Endorsing Either Sanders or Biden Yet
After dropping out of the Presidential nomination race, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar threw their support behind Joe Biden. Mike Bloomberg did the same after leaving the race on Wednesday. It’s hard to tell how impactful those endorsements were, but Biden has a very strong Super Tuesday.
Elizabeth Warren announced that she would end her run for the nomination on Thursday. Unlike her opponents, though, Warren will not be supporting either Biden or Sanders. At least not yet.
The Massachusetts senator told reporters she wanted to run in the center of Biden and Sanders. “I felt that wasn’t right, but evidently, I was wrong,” she said. “I was told when I first got into this, there are two lanes. I thought it was possible that that wasn’t the case, that there was more room and more room to run another kind of campaign. But evidently that wasn’t the case.”
When asked about a possible endorsement, Warren said, “Let’s take a deep breath and spend a little time on that. We don’t have to decide at this minute. I need some space around this, and I want to take a little time to think a little more.”
The announcement figures to be a blow to Bernie Sanders who is considered, along with Warren, to be one of the more progressive candidates. Sanders will now be in a two horse race, though Tulsi Gabbard has yet to drop out. There will be 6 primaries on March 10th, with Michigan being the most watched.
