Fundraising failures could torpedo Warren presidential campaign

This is how far Elizabeth Warren’s star has fallen: she had a head start over all of her main presidential rivals, a full three months to woo donors and raise money, and she is trailing someone who’s not even officially in the race.

The Massachusetts senator’s relatively paltry $6 million haul for the first quarter of 2019 fell $1 million short of the new Democratic sensation, South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who is not planning to announce his campaign until this weekend.

Warren raised three times less money than her main progressive rival, Vermont’s Bernie Sanders, who raised $18 million in just six weeks of campaigning. Sen. Kamala Harris, who has been running for just two months, outraised Warren by $6 million.

1. Warren has a stellar ethical record; she didn't need to engage in meaningless symbolism

 

I've been to several high dollar fundraisers for her Senate races, and nobody suggested she was being "bought". She could have raised good money from progressive upper income Democrats.

3. It's Unfair to Judge Elizabeth Warren's Potential Based Solely on Fund Raising

 

Although she's not my first choice, I have great respect for her insights into our economic system, and some of her solutions. I believe it's ill-advised to dismiss her this early in the primary process. It appears to me that she was originally more focused on her message than on fund raising, but she has plenty of time to catch up financially. In my perception, we need to remain open to her message, and to give her the support she deserves. -- Just one old guy's opinion.
