February 5, 2020 - Warren Addresses Electability Doubts at CNN Townhall


Speaking at a CNN townhall, Warren is asked, “Do you believe that the men in this race have a better chance of beating Trump solely because of their gender?” Warren responds, “I believe that they think so, but they’d be wrong.” She goes on to say that the world changed after the 2016 election, when women organized, mobilized, and went on to run and win elections in record numbers. She credits women for the Democrats’ success in taking back the U.S. House and state legislatures in election 2018 and notes their higher win rates than mean. Warren concludes by saying, “Sometimes we gotta think differently,” and not be stuck in our thinking of who can be president. She argues, “Our country is better than that.”
