The breakdown of the Warren-Sanders alliance


With only three weeks to the Iowa caucus, a feud between long-time progressive allies changed the tone of the race. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who have known each other for years and worked closely together in the Senate, have always presented a united front, and have refrained from going after each other during the democratic primary. But their differing accounts of a private meeting in 2018 led to a very public split this week, and could lead to a fracturing of the progressive movement they have both worked to build.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who recently endorsed Bernie Sanders in the 2020 presidential race, attacked billionaire and Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg today, saying:

"Michael Bloomberg represents the status quo. It is important to talk about it. He's using an inordinate amount of money, we have never seen anything like it in the history of the United States. But what it is masking is a lifetime of supporting those in power, he's the epitome of the power structure in this country. And it is important for people to start understanding what he's really about, given that he's spending literally hundreds of millions of dollars to portray only one side of the story."
