2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren is running a campaign to fight the billionaire class in America. Warren recently began selling mugs branded with the words ‘Billionaire Tears’ and continues to campaign on a platform to fight the Wall Street establishment, institute medicare for all, and increase taxes on the rich.
Further, Warren preaches that she is running on small dollar donors. “With money comes time, access, and the corruption of our representative democracy. Enough is enough. It’s time to get big money out of politics,” Warren says on her campaign site.
As she touts an agenda to bring the billionaire class down, Warren is quietly planning to take in cash from big-money donors, according to a Politico report.
“Boston businessman Paul Egerman and activist Shanti Fry, have maintained campaign titles as Warren’s finance co-chairs, even as her campaign sheared other links to the Democratic donor class earlier this year by forswearing closed-door, in-person fundraising events of the sort Warren did for years in the Senate,” the report stated.
“Fry and Egerman — a longtime friend of Warren’s who helped build support for her first run for office — are courting big donors in the northeast by organizing trips, hosting events and acting as conduits for information about the campaign.”
In the latest CBS News/YouGov poll, Warren closely trails former Vice President Joe Biden who’s retaining popularity in most states. In the latest numbers out of New Hampshire however, Warren is the top candidate with a one percent lead over Biden.
