RALEIGH – Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), the bespectacled socialist running for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination is coming to North Carolina next month, her campaign announced Tuesday.
Former Vice President Joe Biden may be leading the gaggle of Democratic presidential candidates among Democrat voters here in North Carolina, but the Radical Leftist Warren is stuck right to his heels in the Old North State. Actually, Warren is fast becoming a leading contender for Democrats across the country, if not out front, certainly hitting her stride and closing in on a discombobulated Biden.
She hopes to reinforce that momentum on November 7 in a state whose leading Democrats have gleefully taken their own leap Left with an event in Raleigh at Broughton High School. Her campaign said more North Carolina events would be announced soon as they target swing states.
It will be interesting to see how much enthusiasm Warren warrants among Democrats. Biden’s recent event in Durham anticipated “dozens” of attendees. Yet Warren’s brand of unapologetic class warfare and audacious embrace of utterly un-American, socialist policies has hit a current within a Democratic Party that has itself gone completely off the collectivist cliff. So too in North Carolina it seems, which is not lost on Warren; she recently gave Twitter ‘shout outs’ to a Democratic state lawmaker for going ballistic on the House floor in defense of a governor that has also bowed down to the new socialist leaders of their party.
President Donald Trump carried the state in 2016, one of a handful of vital swing states, by about four points. He visited the state a lot, but Democrats cannot possibly leave the same footprint he did. Warren and the rest of them will make stops in Raleigh, Durham, Charlotte — the reliably blue urban/suburban pockets — while Trump filled fields in Selma with 20,000 people.
Warren may draw a crowd in Raleigh (or not), but how well does the new lefter Left play to Democrats in rural North Carolina? We’ll see in March.
