Who knew? Even in Massachusetts the voters don’t like pampered, spoiled, obnoxious hardline Socialists who feel entitled to a Senate seat. Maybe they ought to start vetting their candidates before the coronation.
The White House loves her. Cher loves her. But a lot of Democrats aren’t so wild about Elizabeth Warren’s Senate campaign these days.
The high-powered, fast-running Warren campaign is starting to show some cracks and dings — fueling fresh scuttlebutt of internal dissent in the party.
Sources say some national Democratic officials and unions are unhappy with Warren agreeing to a pact with Republican Scott Brown that could severely limit super PACs and third-party groups from running attack ads.
Brown’s shrewd move to push the pledge comes as a number of polls show his popularity back on the rise in Massachusetts after it had slipped following a series of special-interest-group attack ads.
Outwitted by that doltish, pickup-driving bumpkin? Somehow they haven’t tied Brown to the War on Women yet, so they still have that in their vast arsenal.
“Elizabeth wanted an enforceable agreement keeping out third party ads because she believes it is the right thing to do,” Rubin said. “She is committed to running a strong, grassroots campaign …”
The problem is that Warren’s grassroots campaign hasn’t grown much since she entered the race, raised tons of money and essentially wiped out the rest of the Democratic field. While Warren has held lots of low-key events in safe Democratic enclaves such as Jamaica Plain, she hasn’t yet given any major speeches or announced any eye-catching initiatives.
You know when he campaign began unraveling? When it began.
