Elizabeth Warrens Road to the White House Just Hit a Huge Hurdle

Senator Warren has her eye on the White House as many political observers have noticed. There is one big problem with that and it’s called the Senate reelection in 2018. Senator Warren is one of those whose seat is on the line in 2018. It is no longer looking like a slam dunk. 

As Written By Fred Lucas for Fox News:

Liberal icon Elizabeth Warren has emerged as the scourge of the Trump administration, grilling the president’s Cabinet nominees at every chance and coming out against Supreme Court pick Neil Gorsuch within minutes of his nomination.

The moves are what one might expect from a presidential aspirant. But Warren, who is placed in the top tier of likely Democratic 2020 candidates in very-early polls, first has to keep her Massachusetts Senate seat. It’s not a sure thing.

According to a WBUR poll, just 44 percent of state voters think she deserves re-election, while a plurality – 46 percent – believes she doesn’t deserve a second term. Overall, Warren has a 51 percent favorability rating in the deep blue state.

Republicans are ready to pounce – looking not only to reclaim the seat held, briefly, by GOP Sen. Scott Brown, but potentially sideline a future White House contestant.

“She is absolutely vulnerable. When she should be working for the people of the state, she is spending her time antagonizing the president,” Massachusetts Republican state Rep. Geoff Diehl, who is considering a 2018 Senate run, told Fox News. “She might as well be running for chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.”

Diehl was co-chairman of President Trump’s Bay State campaign last year and gained statewide notoriety in 2014 leading a successful referendum to halt gas tax hikes.

Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling, a conservative talk radio host, also is considering running – though how serious, or viable, he is remains unclear. A Suffolk University poll last October found Warren leading Schilling by 58-24 percent.

A UMass Amherst poll last September found Warren would be in a statistical dead heat with either Republican Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito or former Republican Gov. Bill Weld – though it’s unlikely either Polito or Weld would run.

Presuming challengers emerge, an off-year election could be more difficult for …..

    THIS ISA LETTER THEPOS SEN ME ,,Thank you for contacting me about the release of a final report by Republicans on the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

    On October 22, 2015, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours before a new committee regarding the terrorist attacks on United States facilities in Benghazi, Libya. This Select Committee held four hearings, conducted 107 interviews and depositions, and spent $7 million of taxpayer money over more than two years.

    All three of my brothers served in the military, and I know firsthand how much Americans serving abroad — and their families — sacrifice. What happened in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012 was a tragedy. Four Americans died putting themselves in harm’s way in service to peace, diplomacy, and their country. I look at what happened in Benghazi with sadness, with seriousness, and as yet another call to honor the men and women who keep us safe. This kind of seriousness is sorely missing from the no-holds-barred political theater of House Republicans.

    I take oversight seriously because it is powerfully important. But Benghazi Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy gives oversight a bad name. The House Republicans are on a waste-of-time-and-resources witch hunt and fundraising sideshow, shamefully grasping for any straw to make President Obama or former Secretary Clinton look bad. This stunt does a disservice to those who serve our country abroad, and it distracts us from issues we should be taking up on behalf of the American people. I appreciate your reaching out to me about this issue, and please do not hesitate to contact me in the future about issues of importance to you.

    Sincerely,

    Signature

    Elizabeth Warren

    United States Senator
