Elizabeth Warren's campaign says its fundraising dropped 30 percent from last quarter

Elizabeth Warren's campaign says its fundraising dropped 30 percent from last quarterSen. Elizabeth Warren's (D-Mass.) presidential campaign is looking for a little holiday miracle.On Friday, Warren's campaign sent an email to supporters saying her fundraising was "a good chunk behind where we were at this time last quarter." Her campaign had so far raised $ 17 million ahead of next week's fourth-quarter fundraising deadline, the email said — at least a 30 percent drop from the $ 24.6 million it had ended up with last time.While acknowledging campaigns usually wait until FEC reporting deadlines to reveal how much they've raised, "we're a grassroots team, and you should know exactly where things stand right now," the Warren email said. The campaign is telling supporters where things stand as of Thursday, and asking for help hit the goal of $ 20 million, which it said it needs "to keep our plans on track."Warren nearly topped the 2020 Democratic pool in fundraising last quarter, even beating out former Vice President Joe Biden's $ 15.2 million. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) came out first with $ 25.3 million, marking the highest quarterly fundraising total of any 2020 candidate so far.More stories from theweek.com The evangelical resistance?

Elizabeth Warren once held campaign event at restaurant with 'wine vault'

Elizabeth Warren once held campaign event at restaurant with 'wine vault'Is a good old fashioned winery no longer good enough for people these days?Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has been a vocal critic of big money donors and fundraising in campaigns, calling out South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg for attending a fundraiser at a "wine cave." But Warren herself has a troubled past when it comes to drinking wine in elaborate places.While running for U.S. Senate, Warren reportedly held an event at a restaurant boasting a "wine vault," per The Washington Post. The restaurant also featured wine reaching the price of $ 3,800 a bottle.Warren went after Buttigieg in the last Democratic debate, saying the next president shouldn't be chosen by billionaires in wine caves (although she said nothing of billionaires in wine vaults). Warren's own wine-centric event took place in October 2017, per the Post, and had a $ 1,000 per-attendee price tag. Warren, for her part, has acknowledged she used to have a big donor program but now thinks there is a "better" way to do things.The Post's revelation does provide some good fodder for the next Democratic primary debate, though. Which came first: the wine cave or the wine vault?More stories from theweek.com How a 'legislative terrorist' conquered the Republican Party The West was profoundly wrong about Modi Why do we hang stockings for Christmas?

Obama has reportedly 'gone to bat' for Elizabeth Warren to reluctant wealthy donors

Obama has reportedly 'gone to bat' for Elizabeth Warren to reluctant wealthy donorsFormer President Obama has reportedly been vouching for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) to wealthy donors in an attempt to "rally the troops."Obama, The Hill reports, has in recent months "gone to bat" for the Democratic presidential candidate to "donors reluctant to support her given her knocks on Wall Street and the wealthy," describing her behind the scenes as a capable contender and encouraging them to support her if she's the nominee."He obviously thinks she's very smart," a Democratic donor said. "He thinks her policy ideas matter. And I think he sees her running the campaign with the most depth."Obama has not offered any 2020 endorsement and has made clear he'll stay out of the Democratic primary. Still, the Hill reports that those around Obama say he's concerned Democrats in financial services will, per one ally, "have an issue" with Warren as the nominee, hence his attempt to "rally the troops." One Obama source noted, however, he would do the same for any one of the 2020 Democrats.This comes after a report that Obama in 2015 said that if voters rallied behind Warren, who helped set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in his administration, it would be a "repudiation" of his economic policies. It also comes after a September report on the "far more combative relationship" between Warren and the Obama administration "than she usually discusses on the campaign trail."More stories from theweek.com How a 'legislative terrorist' conquered the Republican Party The West was profoundly wrong about Modi 19 references and callbacks you may have missed in The Rise of Skywalker

Elizabeth Warren brought up Pete Buttigieg's 'wine cave' fundraiser. Things got nasty.2020 Democrats spent a chunk of Thursday's debate discussing what really matters: wine caves.During the debate, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) brought up the fact that South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg had a closed-door fundraiser at whatever a wine cave is earlier this week. But Buttigieg quickly threw the big-money attacks right back on Warren, and uncorked a squabble that got the rest of the candidates involved.After discussing how Buttigieg backers had been served "$ 900 bottles of wine" at the fundraiser, Warren declared that "billionaires in wine caves should not pick the next president of the United States." But Buttigieg decried Warren for "issuing purity tests you cannot yourself pass," pointing out that even though she had sworn off closed-door fundraisers for 2020, she used to conduct them when running for Senate, and had transferred some of those funds to her presidential campaign fund.> Sen.
