Bernie Sanders told Elizabeth Warren a woman couldn't win

Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sen. Elizabeth Warren ‘disappointed’ Sen. Bernie Sanders sent ‘volunteers out to trash me’

Bernie Sanders, the leading candidates in the approaching Iowa caucuses who've steered clear from negative campaigning for the better part of a year.

But the MA senator said in a statement that during their two-hour meeting to discuss the 2020 election, "among the topics that came up was what would happen if Democrats nominated a female candidate".

In an email to supporters Sunday, Warren's campaign manager Roger Lau said that the Sanders campaign had recently instructed volunteers "to dismiss our broad-based inclusive campaign by saying the 'people who support (Elizabeth) are highly-educated, more affluent people". For example, the story notes, it says that former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg lacks support among black voters and also says that "no one is really excited about" former Vice President Joe Biden's candidacy.

Just ask the two dozen voters who waited outside a recent over-packed Dover, New Hampshire, campaign appearance for Elizabeth Warren, the progressive MA senator and the only woman in the top tier, whose campaign mantra is "big, bold change".

In a statement to CNN, Sanders denied the report on how the meeting unfolded and called it "ludicrous" to believe that he told Warren that "a woman couldn't win". "We know that it will ultimately be the children of working class families who will have to fight and die in a new Middle East conflict, not the children of the billionaire class", they said.

While some claimed to be requesting refunds, Warren supporters said the hashtag encouraged them to donate more money to her campaign.

(CNN)Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have for more than a year observed a non-aggression pact created to keep the Democratic left united as it seeks to topple the party's leading moderate presidential candidates.

After Warren told the Vermont independent she believed that broad support from female voters would make her a strong competitor against President Donald Trump, Sanders reportedly responded that he did not believe a woman could win. A year later on C-SPAN, Sanders said, "In my view a woman could be elected president of the United States".

In recent months, in his foreign policy statements, Sanders has referred to an "axis" of dictatorial rulers linked to Trump, including Vladimir Putin in Russian Federation. "After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 3 million votes in 2016". She said she was "disappointed" Sanders was instructing staffers to "trash" her.

"People have to decide do they want originals or do they want copies", Nina Turner, Sanders' campaign co-chair, told CNN over the summer.

The heightened tensions - after almost a year of avoiding attacks on each other - come after a Des Moines Register poll showed Sanders leading the Iowa caucuses, with Warren close behind him. Bernie Sanders at Warren's Washington apartment in December 2018.

The accusation comes at a very inconvenient time for Mr Sanders. "And it looks to me like Democrats are fired up to take out Trump". While Klobuchar sparred with Buttigieg during the last debate, she's previously sought to tamp down tensions among her opponents on the stage and avoided taking the moderators' bait in going after other candidates. An aide said he was not trying to suggest he was more electable than a woman. "Of course!" Sanders said in the statement.

Sanders also stepped up his criticism of the foreign policy record of former Vice President Biden, the choice of the Democratic Party establishment for the presidential nomination, citing Biden's 2002 vote for the Authorization for Use of Military Force resolution that gave the green light for the Bush administration to invade and occupy Iraq. "We've got at least four people who are bunched right there together at the top".

"This fire was started", Chamberlain said, but "it can be put out by leadership by example from the top".
