BOSTON (CBS) — Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she doesn’t wonder if she’s missed her moment to jump into the presidential race, even as Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s campaign faces challenges and outsiders like Donald Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders draw large crowds of disaffected voters.
“People want to hear about the issues, they want to hear about change,” Warren told WBZ-TV political analyst Jon Keller. “The government has been seized by those with money and power and it’s time for change. . . I think that’s what we’re seeing.”
Keller asked Warren about Clinton’s email controversy and polling struggles, and wondered if it was a mistake for the Democratic party to “anoint” her as the nominee so early on.
“I don’t think anybody’s’s been anointed,” Warren said. “What’s going on right now is that presidential candidates on both sides, Republican and Democrat, are laying out their agendas and this is going to give voters a chance to look at them and decide.”
Pressed further about Clinton’s “unimpressive campaign so far,” Warren responded that she wants to “see all of the presidential candidates lay out where they stand on key issues.”
Warren and Keller also discussed the Iran deal, equal pay for women and her efforts to change the country’s bankruptcy laws.
