“Not many Democrats emerged from the midterm election rubble unscathed. One exception may be Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts Democrat who is becoming a new center of gravity in a demoralized party,” the Wall Street Journal reports.
“In a nod to her growing influence, Senate Democrats rewarded the populist firebrand with a spot in the party’s leadership this week. A group called ‘Ready for Warren’ said it would step up its efforts to draft her for a presidential bid and plans to hire staff in states with early nomination contests. The number of small donors to the group rose eightfold compared with the week before the election, said Erica Sagrans, Ready for Warren campaign manager and a former Obama campaign aide.”Save to Favorites
