Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has admitted that her attempt to win the 2020 Democratic Party nomination for president is “falling short” when it comes to fundraising.
In a fundraising plea sent to her supporters yesterday, Warren boasted of “turning out huge crowds across the country and talking about real policies for big, structural change, like the Ultra Millionaire Tax and her plan for Universal Child Care.”
But she also acknowledged that her campaign was “23 percent behind where we need to be to hit our February fundraising goal.” Warren also noted that she would “probably never going to raise the most money” because she will not take political action committee money and will not gain favor from deep-pocketed corporate donors, and she made an extra urgent plea for more grassroots support.
“We will be outraised,” Warren’s fundraising letter stated. “We will be outspent. We just can't let ourselves be drowned out.”
