Progressive activists adore her, her campaign cash is piling up and she is celebrated by liberals as a key leader of the “resistance” to Donald Trump.
But no one relishes the prospect of an Elizabeth Warren presidential bid quite like Republicans do.
“I’ll be glad to donate,” joked Ron Kaufman, the Republican National Committeeman from Massachusetts who has watched Warren’s career closely. “I think she’s probably unelectable as president.”
Added Brian Ballard, a longtime Florida lobbyist and top fundraiser for Trump, “As a fan of the president’s, I hope that Elizabeth Warren is the Democratic nominee. That would be a dream come true for us.”
The Sacramento Bee reports that her hard-left posture, which makes her so popular among liberals – and could make her formidable in a Democratic primary – gives Republicans reason to think she would scare disillusioned RINOs and get them to coalesce behind the President.
