Warren is distinctly positioned to achieve severe reform without compromising what’s operating in our economic situation as well as technology ecological community. She would certainly obtain under the hood to deal with the engine– not repel a high cliff, however additionally not simply kick the tires.

The board ended “there can be no doubt” that Warren “will fight for the integrity of our democracy and for our society’s most vulnerable” if she safeguards the Democratic election and after that beats Trump in November.

“Massachusetts — and for that matter, South Carolina and other Super Tuesday states — should give her the chance to keep doing it,” it included.
