Democrat Dayton Shooter Would “Happily Vote” for Elizabeth Warren
The leftist Democrat who committed a mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio Saturday, killing at least nine people and injuring 27, expressed his support of leading Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren on his now-deleted Twitter feed.
Connor Betts, 24, stated that he preferred Elizabeth Warren to Kamala Harris in a tweet, on an account purported to be his. The account, which had the username @iamthespookster, has since been taken down by Twitter.
Kamala Harris is looked down upon in some hard-left and socialist circles for her track record as a Prosecutor in California. It would make sense that a committed socialist such as Betts would view her negatively.
Betts was killed by Dayton police less than a minute after he began a massacre at a Dayton bar. He used an AR-15 rifle with a hundred-round drum magazine.
Betts had identified as ““he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / i’m going to hell and i’m not coming back“ on the now-deleted Twitter account. He expressed support for ANTIFA terrorist Willem Van Spronsen, who was killed by police in Washington after deploying an incendiary device against an ICE immigration detention facility.

Although Betts’ political views are clear, authorities are yet to pin down a specific motive for his actions at the downtown Dayton bar on Saturday. Betts murdered his own sister and her boyfriend in the attack. It’s possible he was acting in retaliation to the seemingly white nationalist mass shooter who carried out a heinous murder spree in El Paso, Texas, earlier that day.
Warren, who currently stands in either third or fourth place in most polls for the Democratic presidential primary, is yet to give a statement fully disavowing the support of the mass shooter who expressed support of her candidacy.
