Warren gets in step with Clinton campaign

WASHINGTON – She remains the only Democrat in the U.S. Senate who hasn’t endorsed a presidential candidate, but reportedly members of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s camp are actively working behind the scenes to help propel Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
Such was the most significant nugget of information to appear in a Washington Post report outlining the current status of the former Secretary of State’s campaign, her team’s push to rally lukewarm Democrats and her efforts to sway voters in California’s upcoming primary, where polls show she’s in a tight race with rival Bernie Sanders.
As for the Warren camp, the Post cited Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon as saying that the campaign is “in regular contact with her team,” while stressing that both sides insist “there is no formal coordination.”
Coordination, however, does exist, as evidenced by the series of blistering social media verbal bombs being lobbed at the presumptive Republican nominee, New York billionaire Donald Trump. Warren has been unrelenting in attacking Trump on Twitter, a pattern that first began with a series of 11 tweets on March 21, one of which Clinton repeated to her followers.
As of last Thursday – which marked the last time Warren has fired off a tweet bashing Trump – she has laid into the former reality-television star about 50 times on Twitter.
Last week, the senator from Cambridge moved her attacks out of cyberspace and onto the stage at a Washington gala hosted by the left-leaning Center for Popular Democracy.
The event marked the first time Warren had devoted a speaking engagement to the job of ripping Trump, deriding him as a “small, insecure money-grubber who doesn’t care who gets hurt, so long as he makes some money.”
Warren has steadfastly refused to officially endorse either Clinton or Sanders, a U.S. Senator from Vermont, although she’s clearly committed to rallying against the possibility of a Trump presidency.
