Warren's campaign sounds the alarm as fundraising pace slows about 30% in fourth quarter

Sen. Elizabeth Warren's campaign told supporters in an email on Friday that, so far, it has raised just over $17 million in the fourth quarter, a significant drop from her fundraising haul during the third quarter.

The memo asks backers to step up in giving to the campaign.

"So far this quarter, we've raised a little over $17 million. That's a good chunk behind where we were at this time last quarter," it says.

Warren finished the third quarter bringing in $24.6 million, which was much more than most of the other Democratic primary contenders, including former Vice President Joe Biden and Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

If the $17 million total stands that would represent a 30% drop from the previous quarter. The quarter ends in four days.

1. It is not surprising as she is not likely to be the nominee based on recent polls...why send money?

 

I think the attacks on Buttigieg which I believe were unfair hurt her and will hurt Sanders as well.

4. I disagree they were unfair.

 

But the after affects hurt her and that general perception held. It is looking like she might have to find a horse to back soon.

attack Buttigieg for doing it? Personally, I see nothing wrong with fund raising and we need it to win elections.

3. I wonder if the other top tier candidates had a drop in fundraising this quarter

 

People had to allocate funds for Christmas after all.

Of course, if you're an investment banker, hedge fund manager, or someone else who can drop $5,000 for an intimate dinner in a wine cave...

a second-tier hole. And she's both a woman and made, imo, a serious mistake in going too far left to try to pick up some Sanders voters.

14. Yes, the tight embrace of Sanders' poorly defined proposals did it for me.

 

I was convinced that she could find a middle ground groove to the left of Biden, but more centered than Sanders, but then she kept embracing Bernie's non-starters.

or helping things happen in the senate. Presidents don't write or pass legislation, after all.

I am not ready to give up on Liz for President just yet, she naturally does things that I really like (like seek out expert advice). I just hope that she learned that embracing Bernie's horrid vision will gain her nothing and cause her to lose left-center people like me.

who don't even begin to mistake her for Sanders and the "horrid vision" he can't give away.

Darned good thing for him he's not a capitalist trying to offload socialism to dollar stores.

29. Warren is not like Sanders.

 

I have come to view her as someone who believes in the inate decency that resides in every person. Bernie strikes me as someone who would be ok with a totalitarian method of suppressing dissent, I don't believe Warren would tolerate that.

Although I am 180 opposed to who they want as our nominee, I generally like the Berners that have populated the sight (as opposed to the ones that come in to cause shit), for some reason they have come to believe the system is screwed up and only Bernie can get it straightened out, a conclusion that I see nothing in his history to support. I like them because they seem to be the type that once they believe in you, they will absolutely fight to the mat for you, I have a soft spot for that, so even as I virulently oppose them, I also like them as people.

19. Just read all the comments

 

Not one of our candidates is perfect.

I would vote for any though over who we have.

It sort of feels like most of the posters are happy when one candidate errors and makes theirs look good.

How about this, lets make all the candidates look good. Letís tell people what democrats can do for them instead of Trump.

I know this is primary time but this one scares me, I fear they may cheat and we need to band together now not this summer.

35. Clinton outraised Drumpf in the last election

 

Didn't put her in the Oval Office did it?



But if the article is true in that Warren's fundraising dip came as she escalated her attacks on oligarchs, then that pretty much proves the corrupting influence of wealthy donor money in politics.
