Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s advisers are in communication with the Hillary Clinton campaign, and it is likely that Warren will endorse Clinton at some point after the Democratic primaries end.
The Washington Post reported:
Perhaps the biggest sign that a new effort is underway among liberals to begin healing fissures within the party comes from Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), the heroine of the left. Although Warren still has not endorsed Clinton — and remains the lone Democratic woman in the Senate not to do so — she has stepped up her attacks on Trump, and her advisers have begun communicating regularly with the Clinton campaign.
“We are in regular contact with her team and are very excited about the prominent role she has taken in defining what’s at stake in the election,” said Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon. Both sides continued to insist that there is no formal coordination — and most likely, no endorsement by Warren until after the last round of primaries.
By staying out of the Democratic presidential primary, Sen. Warren has strengthened her own personal brand without tying herself to either of the candidates. Sen. Warren’s devastating attacks on Donald Trump are a sign that she is going to play a big role in the fall Democratic campaign.
Sen. Warren’s decision not to endorse Bernie Sanders in the primary was de facto assist to Hillary Clinton, so it is not a surprise that the Senator from Massachusetts would eventually endorse Clinton after she becomes the Democratic nominee. One can expect Warren to deliver a speech at the convention that will take Donald Trump apart while making the case for Democrats keeping the White House.
Warren will endorse Clinton. The endorsement will probably come before the Democratic convention, but the fact that her advisers are communicating with the Clinton campaign suggests that it is only a matter of when not if Elizabeth Warren will endorse Hillary Clinton
