According to a long form Friday report in New York Magazine, a pact between Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), both presidential candidates, appears to be falling apart.
“Warren and Sanders would not go after each other directly on the campaign trail. That’s not what they wanted 2020 to be about,” the magazine said.
The pair – long considered to be legislative allies on Capitol Hill – made this arrangement upon deciding that both would run for president, which neither attempted to dissuade the other from doing. But early in Democratic Party primary, the pact appears strained.
From The New Yorker:
Half a year of campaigning later, with the pair running second and third in the Democratic race to take on Donald Trump, that arrangement held. Then, on Wednesday, Politico shared a story on Wednesday by tweeting, “Centrists are coming around to Elizabeth Warren as an alternative to Bernie Sanders,” and Sanders responded by retweeting it from his account, noting, “The cat is out of the bag. The corporate wing of the Democratic Party is publicly ‘anybody but Bernie.’ They know our progressive agenda of Medicare for All, breaking up the big banks, taking on drug companies and raising wages is the real threat to the billionaire class.” Political Twitter perked up — here was a real shot in the war so many had so long expected — until Sanders went on CNN a few hours later to tell Chris Cuomo, “That tweet was not about Elizabeth Warren, at all.”
But the Twitter scrum isn’t the first bump on the road between the campaigns. U.S. News & World Report published an early June story wherein an anonymous Sanders adviser claimed that Warren could not possibly win the general election.
“Warren fundamentally fails a basic threshold question: Can she beat Trump? Look at the general election polling. She does the worst of all candidates tested. That’s the DNA test debacle. It just fundamentally killed her. People want somebody who can beat Trump. She loses that argument,” the advisor reportedly said.
The Sanders campaign rushed to clarify for Warren’s camp, making it clear that the position of the advisor did not reflect that of the entire campaign.
The pair is now running second and third in major primary polls. Some polls have Warren leading Sanders, some reflect the opposite. Former vice president Joseph R. Biden Jr. still leads the polls despite a turbulent week.

‘Never Trump’ Republican Group Led by George Conway Endorses Joe Biden for President
They want to hand the country back to the Democrats.
The “Lincoln Project,” a group set up by George Conway and other Never Trumpers, has officially endorsed Democrat Joe Biden for President.
The group made a statement on Wednesday that they are “committed to ensuring that Joe Biden is sworn in on January 20, 2021.”
“Joe Biden has the experience — in politics, in government and in life — to lead the United States out of our current crisis,” Lincoln Project co-founder Reed Galen said in a statement.
“As America contends with unprecedented loss, we need a leader who can steady our ship of state, bind up our common wounds, and lead us into our next national chapter. Joe Biden has the humanity, empathy and steadiness we need in a national leader,” he added.
Conway, who is married to White House counselor Kelly Anne Conway, revealed that he gave the maximum donation to Biden in a Twitter post last month.

The group released a demeaning video campaign making fun of evangelical Christians for supporting Trump in January.
“If this is the best American Christians can do, then God help us all,” the advertisement stated.
Big League Politics reported on the genesis of the Lincoln Project, which was founded last year to undermine the President and grift off of individuals with Trump Derangement Syndrome:
George Conway, husband of White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway, has announced a project that aims to sabotage President Trump’s chances at re-election in 2020, and give the country back to the Democrats.
Conway is allying with anti-Trump GOP operatives such as Steve Schmidt, John Weaver and Rick Wilson on “The Lincoln Project.” They made the announcement of their sabotage campaign against the President in a joint op/ed published by the New York Times…
To these individuals with severe Trump derangement syndrome, it is patriotic to elect Democrats who openly pine to eviscerate the Bill of Rights toward their end goal of totalitarian socialism…
Regardless of his motives, Conway has emerged as one of the most classless individuals in modern politics. This grotesque figure is a living reminder that the Washington D.C. swamp enables the worst of the worst to thrive.
These Never Trumpers have been forced out of the Republican Party and are clinging to relevance in the hopes of giving the country back to the Democrats. If Trump defeats Biden and wins re-election in November, these modern-day Benedict Arnolds can be ushered into the dustbin of history once and for all.
