Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who rose in the Democratic Presidential Primary to renounce traditional fundraisers, said this week that she would continue to miss out on such events if she became the candidate for her position during the year 2019.
From the day that Ms. Warren announced her plan to skip traditional fundraisers in February, she said the pledge was only for elementary school. "I do not believe in unilateral disarmament," she said on MSNBC.
However, in an interview with CBS News published Tuesday night, she said that even if President Trump set records for fundraising, she would not change her as she is. The campaign will bring in money if they win the Democratic nomination Has.
After their first response, CBS's Zak Hudak asked if this was Ms. Warren's position, "no matter how much money Donald Trump collects. "
" Yes, I do not fundraise for big bucks. I just will not do it, "Ms. Warren said." The whole idea behind this campaign is that we can build this together, and that's exactly what we're doing. "
With the support of small donors, Ms. Warren is one of the strongest fundraisers in the world Democrats in 2020, which has collected $ 24.6 million in the last three months of more than $ 25 million has 940,000 donations, second only to Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, the 25.3 million
Ms. Warren has been steadily taking part in the surveys year-round and has recently started serving former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. in a number of surveys at both national and state level in Iowa and New [Hampshire, where the first votes were taken.]
Mrs. Warren's campaign stated that her position was not a reversal but "a clarification that the original Fassu was a bit vague ". The campaign said it should ensure that state and national parties "have the resources they need" if they were nominated. Ms. Warren hosted a Democratic National Committee event in August, but did not meet privately with the large donors present. She is in for another forthcoming D.N.C. Event.

In an interview with The New York Times over the summer, Ms. Warren said, "It's primaries, it's Democrat vs. Democrat, I do not believe in unilateral disarmament."
Some of Mrs. Warren's rivals have privately complained about the disagreement She said she would re-fund such events in the presidential election for her presidential campaign in the remainder of Senate money, then she said she would restart such events when she was nominated, but nobody directly confronted her
Ms. Warren is one of two Democrats who skip traditional fundraising efforts, with candidates collecting checks worth up to $ 2,800, while the other, Mr. Sanders, said he would reject such events if he would be nominated, a contrast that his aides and allies have emphasized seeking to win.
Ms. Warren's previous readiness to do so Making events like the nomination had been something of an olive branch, extended to a democratic establishment that is suspicious of its candidature in the insurgent style. In general elections, donors can earn up to $ 300,000 per person in nominee and D.N.C.
