‘So infuriating!! We could be dominating’…
(Claire Russel, Liberty Headlines) Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and other progressives blamed the lack of unity among leftists for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’s underwhelming performance on Super Tuesday, and suggested Sanders could have won had Elizabeth Warren dropped out.
Specifically referring to her home state of Minnesota, which Joe Biden won in a surprising upset, Omar took a veiled swipe at Warren and suggested she should have dropped out and endorsed Sanders in the same way Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar dropped out and endorsed Biden.
Imagine if the progressives consolidated last night like the moderates consolidated, who would have won?.

Sanders’s base was quick to condemn Warren, as well.
Elizabeth Warren is like a blood sucking tick you can’t rid of. She’s literally viable in Massachusetts, Utah, Minnesota, Maine, and Colorado…. So infuriating!! We could be dominating, but Elizabeth Warren is in to give the election to Biden.

Staying in is looking like a horrible, horrible idea for Elizabeth Warren. To place THIRD in her own state. This is one of the worst miscalculations I’ve seen in my life.

Biden carried Massachusetts, followed by Sanders in second, while Warren came in third.
Her dismal performance in her home state and the other primary states has forced Warren to reassess her presidential campaign, according to an email sent by her campaign manager Wednesday morning.
“Last night, we fell well short of viability goals and projections, and we are disappointed in the results,” Roger Lau wrote in an email to campaign staffers, according to ABC News.
