Warren supporters’ outlooks ranged from disappointed to defeatist in the wake of her distant 4th place finish in New Hampshire, with the surrogate arguing that the tail end of Warren’s New Hampshire operation was bungled and less organized than it had been for most of the cycle.
“She couldn’t find/doesn’t have a lane — die hard progressives went with Bernie when they saw his health scare wasn’t lasting,” the surrogate, who asked for anonymity because they weren’t authorized by the campaign to speak publicly, said in a text message. “She couldn’t be the woman/centrist candidate with Klobuchar already there.”
Mixed signals were sent about visibility for the campaign, they said, with the surrogate and others feeling held at arms-length at times and hastily courted at others.
It’s time to quit, but the DNC needs her to keep siphoning votes away from Bernie Sanders.
