Welcome to 2020 Vision, the Yahoo News column covering the presidential race. Reminder: There are 52 days until the Iowa caucuses and 326 days until the 2020 presidential election.
With polls showing her once steady rise to the top tier of the Democratic race stalling, Sen. Elizabeth Warren went on the attack on Thursday in a speech at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire, taking thinly veiled swipes at both Joe Biden and Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
“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 said in a rebuke of her more moderate 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,” she continued.
Without mentioning their names, Warren accused Biden and Buttigieg of catering to big-money donors, saying they are “selling access to their time for money.” She called out Biden specifically for assuring wealthy donors at a fundraiser that “nothing would fundamentally change” if he is elected, and Buttigieg for offering special access to his “national investors circle.”
I truly believe the best things in life are a result of being bold and being real. I’m proud to endorse Elizabeth Warren today, for being bold, for being real, for listening to ALL of us, and for being prepared to navigate the unique challenges we face today as a country @ewarren pic.twitter.com/9hX3gQYjvo
