America Rising PAC has started a new initiative. It’s called “The Elizabeth Warren Initiative.” The group has one goal. To fight Warren’s reelection to the Senate and to fight against any attempt she makes at the presidency. This is a tactic first tried unsuccessfully by the far left liberals against Donald Trump and later against his cabinet nominees.
Warren is considered one of the top contenders for the Democratic nomination. The 67-year-old former Harvard professor is currently touring to promote her 11th book, “This Fight is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class.” America Rising, which was founded in 2013 by a former Mitt Romney campaign official, compares the purpose of the tract to Hillary Clinton’s “Hard Choices,” a 2014 memoir which served as a soft launch of the former first lady’s campaign.
In the memo, Reed says America Rising will utilize most of the tactics employed by most political research groups: opposition research, video tracking, and public records requests.
The fruits of that research and monitoring will be used to make four general arguments against Warren: that she has put her presidential ambitions ahead of her constituents in Massachusetts, that she has fallen short “of the Kennedy standard,” that she is “left of the far left,” and that she is a hypocrite on a variety of issues, including school choice and equal pay.
In a Morning Consult Poll, 44% say she deserves reelection. But 46% says she doesn’t. If she is defeated in her reelection bid, she will probably lose in the primary rather than in the general election against a republican unless Charlie Baker runs against her. Surprisingly, the republican governor has an approval rate of 75% which is the highest of any governor in America. That’s in a stste where the democrats have a 2-1 edge.
