    Hundreds of Obama Alumni Throw Biden Under the Bus and Endorse Warren for 2020

    “Sen. Warren really has the zest and the grit and the gumption and the audacity that we loved that President Obama really embodied.”

    Obama’s non-endorsement of Joe Biden has been the subject of much speculation, but now things are getting even stranger. Hundreds of people who worked for the Obama campaign and administration are now backing Elizabeth Warren.

    This is going to be extremely difficult for the Joe Biden 2020 campaign to dismiss as insignificant.

    Cameron Cawthorne reports at the Washington Free Beacon:

    Hundreds of Obama Alumni Stab Joe Biden in the Back, Endorse Warren

    Hundreds of Obama administration and campaign alumni are turning their backs on Joe Biden to support Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) in the Democratic presidential primary.

    Former Barack Obama aides Sara El-Amine and Jon Carson collected more than 200 signatures from former Obama staffers endorsing Warren, CNN reports. El-Amine and Carson both worked on Obama’s 2008 campaign, but the group they assembled to publicly back Warren includes a range of officials from the Obama era.

    The list of endorsers shared with CNN includes Robert Ford, ex-US ambassador to Syria, and Sean Carroll, a former senior official at USAID. It also features Obama alumni who are currently working on the Warren campaign full-time including in senior-most positions, like Warren chief strategist Joe Rospars, senior adviser Emily Parcell, national political director Rebecca Pearcey and national director of public engagement Alencia Johnson.

    This is not entirely unexpected. David Axelrod, one of Obama’s closest advisers, has been repeatedly critical of Biden’s performance in the Democrat primary debates.

    Here’s more from the CNN report:

    In an interview with CNN, El-Amine and Carson touted the “incredible diversity” of the group that has come out in support of Warren. The 200-plus names were collected in under a week, and they planned to continue growing the list, they said.

    “We are a group that really uniquely knows that electability is self-determining and that oftentimes it’s the people with the boldest vision and the most unlikely candidacies early on who can really shift the field,” El-Amine said. “Sen. Warren really has the zest and the grit and the gumption and the audacity that we loved that President Obama really embodied.”

    Warren has already jumped on this, of course:

    Elizabeth just grates on my nerve.

    I guess she really is a Trump lackey, but making America grate isn’t the slogan.
