Breitbart: CNN Politics senior writer and analyst Harry Enten branded Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) a “below-par candidate” following the launch of the progressive firebrand’s 2020 presidential exploratory committee Monday. He highlighted that Hillary Clinton won Massachusetts by a wider margin in the 2016 presidential election than the senator’s 2018 re-election bid.
A partial transcript is as follows:
PAMELA BROWN: You say Warren’s best performance in the 2018 midterms is one of the weakest for a Democratic Senate candidate, even though she won by 24 points. Explain that. What about those numbers?
HARRY ENTEN: The fact is Massachusetts is a very blue state. Hillary Clinton won there by 27 points. Liz Warren only won there by 24, and keep in mind that 2018 was a much better year for Democrats nationwide. The fact that Liz Warren did worse than Hillary Clinton in Massachusetts suggests that perhaps she’s a below-par candidate. MORE
