Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) may not be running for president herself, but that didn’t stop her from praising Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at a recent event.
While participating in a roundtable discussion at Middlesex Community College on Friday, Warren was asked about Sanders’ presidential campaign.
“I’m glad to see him get out there and give his version of what leadership in this country should be,” Warren told the group, according to the Boston Herald. “I think that Bernie Sanders is going to play out a vision for America and that it is important for people to hear what he has to say.”
Progressive Democrats have pushed for Warren to make a bid for the White House, but she sees eye-to-eye with Sanders on many issues. For the most part, pundits agree that Sanders and Warren would be long shots for winning the nomination, but they could push Hillary Clinton to the left on some issues.
“People trying to get a great education don’t have lobbyists, but we do have our voices,” Warren told the students on Friday. “We will win, we will get what we want, we will move this country in a better direction only if we get involved.”

Maddow reveals how one state stood up to Trump’s USPS cuts — and won
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow's opening segment on Friday focused on a positive story of political pressure stopping one of the Trump administration's attacks on the U.S. Postal Service.
Maddow reported how NBC Montana reporter Maritsa Georgiou had doggedly reported on the removal of postal boxes in Missoula, where she is based. Missoula has been a long-time Democratic Party stronghold.
Montana has a competitive U.S. Senate election in 2020, with Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock challenging first-term Republican Sen. Steve Daines.
As Georgiou chased the story, she learned there were also plans to remove boxes in the battleground of Billings. And more planned for the blue town of Bozeman. And other towns.

Trump supporter shut down on Fox News: ‘Turns out Stephen Moore is not a very good epidemiologist’
University of Michigan economics professor Justin Wolfers mocked Trump 2016 economics advisor Stephen Moore on Fox News over the administrations bungled response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Let's not have economists play epidemiologists here, mate," Wolfers said in his Australian accent.
"We actually tried Steve's prescription, which was not shutting down, that's what the sunbelt states did," he explained.
"What have you got? You've got spreading disease everywhere and you've got the economies there forced to shut down," he explained.
"We tried what Stephen Moore wanted -- it turns out Stephen Moore is not a very good epidemiologist," Wolfers concluded.
