Elizabeth Warren: The Democratic Party Is Going to Say 'No' to the Billionaires

“Is this going to be a Democratic primary that is funded by the grassroots, that is done with grassroots volunteers, or is this going to be something that’s just one more plaything that billionaires can buy?” Warren asked.
“So I think this is a moment for all of the Democratic nominees to come into the race to say ‘in a Democratic primary we are going to link arms and we’re going to say grassroots funding. No to the billionaires. No to the billionaires whether they are self-funding or whether they are funding PACs. We are the Democratic Party and that’s the party of the people,’” she continued. “That’s how we not only win elections, that’s how we win movements that make real change.”
Warren’s comments marked her first interview since becoming the first major Democratic name to jump into the 2020 presidential race. Warren announced Monday that she is forming an exploratory committee to run for the White House.
Warren went on to clarify that billionaires, including Democratic megadonor Tom Steyer and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who would likely fund their own campaigns if they were to launch a 2020 bid for the White House should not be precluded from seeking the party’s nomination.

Warren is also selling shares in the Brooklyn Bridge. This can be filed under “campaign blather”.

"Sometimes when I try to understand a person's motives, I play a little game. I assume the worst. What's the worst reason they could possibly have for saying what they say and doing what they do? Then I ask myself, 'How well does that reason explain what they say and what they do?'" GRRM
