December 9, 2019 - Warren Says She Will Not Be Quiet

At a campaign event in Las Vegas, Warren says that she has fought for everything in her life, assuring voters that she will outwork, out organize, and outlast Trump in the general election. She adds that she’s had used to men telling her “to sit down and be quit,” but that she has “stood up and fought back” in response, which she vows to do in this election. This line is consistent with previous challenges Warren has made to claims that she is too angry or aggressive. It also references the well-known moment when U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) silenced Warren on the Senate floor after “she had been warned,” but, “nevertheless she persisted.”
