I think she did!



Elizabeth Warren as Treasury Secretary in Sanders' Administration!

Now that would strike fear into the hearts of the corrupt Wall St manipulators our economy.

And Barbara Lee for VP!

Edited to add this link to her entire statement:

Eliabeth Warren Praises Bernie Sanders His Vision for America is Important for People to Hear

Friday, Warren was asked about Sanders’ presidential campaign.

“I’m glad to see him get out there and give his version of what leadership in this country should be,” Warren told the group, according to the Boston Herald. “I think that Bernie Sanders is going to play out a vision for America and that it is important for people to hear what he has to say.”

I like how you bring Hillary supporters into it. NCTraveler Jun 2015 #62
Did that hurt? madokie Jun 2015 #75
I'm not aware of what you are saying. NCTraveler Jun 2015 #76
Of course you don't madokie Jun 2015 #77

Thanks for your OPINION! Mine is different, which is fine. That is why I ASKED THE QUESTION. sabrina 1 Jun 2015 #23
All of my posts are my opinion. MineralMan Jun 2015 #33
I think we DUers all know what a FORMAL endorsement is. My Op was to ask for the opinions of others sabrina 1 Jun 2015 #54
Exactly. I answered your question. MineralMan Jun 2015 #80

That's your wishful thinking. She has also written a letter urging Hillary Clinton to run. pnwmom Jun 2015 #13
Did she write it, or just sign it with the other Senators? polichick Jun 2015 #15
If she signed it, she meant it. (I'm not aware who exactly penned it. But it doesn't matter.) n/t pnwmom Jun 2015 #19

It's not an outright endorsement, but imo, a subtle message to her supporters to pay attention to sabrina 1 Jun 2015 #31
did she do the nod and a wink thing when she said it dlwickham Jun 2015 #59
Have you compared her Senate voting record to Bernie's by any chance? Just asking, I note the sabrina 1 Jun 2015 #63

She is far more in sync with Bernie on the issues than she is with Hillary, as Bernie's support sabrina 1 Jun 2015 #40
How do you think she'd answer the question onenote Jun 2015 #71
I'm sure she would say 'yes' and I would agree with her. What I did NOT agree with sabrina 1 Jun 2015 #91

I'm glad it was Bernie rather than Warren at this point. Smears against Warren had already begun, sabrina 1 Jun 2015 #74
All very good points... Javaman Jun 2015 #100
"it is important for people to hear what he has to say" = his message is being endorced. L0oniX Jun 2015 #81
