NEWS: Ayanna Pressley breaks with "The Squad," endorses Elizabeth Warren, her longtime ally. Probably Warren's most high-profile endorsement yet, even if it is in-state.
Rep. Ayanna Pressley endorsed Elizabeth Warren, her home state senator and longtime ally, for president. It's Warren's most high-profile congressional endorsement to this point. https://t.co/UDvqO7MEm1
Is there any surprise Ayanna Pressley, who served as a moderate, pro-business voice on the Boston City Council, then served as a Hillary Clinton surrogate, defending Clinton's record on criminal justice & attacking Bernie on Medicare for All... didn't endorse Bernie?
Squad split will get national headlines, but this isn't surprising. Pressley was Clinton surrogate in 16, never the same origin story as AOC/Omar/Tlaib
This is about Mass., and will aid speculation that Pressley is heir apparent for Warren Senate seat
Ayanna Pressley is from Massachusetts, so this makes sense.
And despite being a member of the "squad," it seems like her political roots aren't based in leftist activism/organizing in the same way that Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Omar and Tlaib's roots are. https://t.co/upYmVZdxeH
NEW and HUGE: Ayanna Pressley is endorsing Elizabeth Warren in the 2020 race for president. "This election is a fight for the very soul of this nation." https://t.co/9jMkpXTLTD
Ayanna Pressley hasn't been consistently aligned with the rest of The Squad. For example in July AOC, Omar and Tlaib voted no on a resolution to condemn the civilian-led boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign against Israel. Pressley voted yes https://t.co/qiNiVDR4Yf
I really don't want to see ANY Bernie supporters going after Ayanna Pressley today over this endorsement.
1. It doesn't matter. It won't make a difference in the race
2. It makes Bernie & his supporters look bad
3. This endorsement was expected- bc both are from mass
Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley has endorsed her home-state Sen. Elizabeth Warren for president.
The Berniecrats now dissing Ayanna Pressley have very little faith in the political maturity of the rest of the Squad. All four members are smart enough not to let this split their group.
There are good reasons for Ayanna Pressley to endorse Warren, and I respect it. Also, I feel gleeful that she didn't endorse an 80yo man with very few accomplishments who just had a heart attack.
Ayanna Pressley is a massive endorsement for Warren. If Warren is the nominee, Pressley is the smartest pick for the special election to fill Warren’s seat. She’d make an incredible Senator. https://t.co/vOlyZs0rrE
God love him, Joe Biden is going to ride this dinosaur until it drops dead underneath him. Which of "his" Republican colleagues is going to have this "epiphany"? Mitch McConnell? Tom Cotton, who, on Wednesday, started pitching for the next Mexican War? https://t.co/4MHvTSp3TK
Ayanna Pressley means the world to me. When I see her, when I hear her, I see myself, I see my friends, I see my future. I am so so proud to stand with her in the fight for big, structural change. Welcome to #TeamWarren, queen @AyannaPressley https://t.co/YqVCLq6qt9
Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley endorsed Elizabeth Warren for president today, making Pressley the only member of the liberal freshman “Squad” to back a 2020 candidate other than Bernie Sanders https://t.co/rp9gYIceeT
Ayanna Pressley, NEOLIBERAL!!!!!!!
I love how the narrative about this very good lefty congresswoman goes from hero and member of THE SQUAD to NEOLIBERAL DNC HACK overnight based on endorsing that noted NEOLIBERAL DNC HACK BELOVED BY WALL STREET, Elizabeth Warren. https://t.co/MSKA578ARJ
Ayanna Pressley endorsing Elizabeth Warren over Bernie Sanders is very consistent with her brand. In 2016 Ayanna sounded more like Zerlina Maxwell than Ilhan Omar. At least she's consistent. @RepPressley
So ayanna pressley endorsed @ewarren
. It wasn't a surprise. She was a Hillary supporter and naturally went with Warren. That's what Centrists do. 🤷♀️
I am amused however by the Warren supporters going off on this after saying @AOC
endorsing Bernie was a nothing. 😏
I there any surprise Lee Fang from the Intercept always finds a way to attack black women who don't conform to his thinly veiled racist alt-left orthodoxy? To be fair, he probably can't tell the difference between Ayanna Pressley and Stacey Abrams so....
Rep. Ayanna Pressley has endorsed Sen. Elizabeth Warren for president, splitting from her fellow far-left "Squad" members.....😬
I wonder if AOC will turn into what Hillary is when people betray her....😱
Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself
Just proving again that to the “progressive left,” WOC aren’t people with agency and nuance but dolls for them to play with. That’s why Ayanna Pressley is with Warren over St Bernie. https://t.co/qliQ8QV6Gr
Ayanna Pressley breaks with sqaud endorces Warren over Bernie.
Both are worthless.
Both support high taxes high regulations and healthcare for all which would bankrupt the nation and wipe out the middle class.
A vote for either would destroy America.
⚡"The SQUAD" FRACTURES ⚡
Ayanna Pressley Breaks with ‘The Squad’ to Endorse Warren over Sanders https://t.co/4Bmcc9GH18
Rep. Ayanna Pressley's endorsement is a major one for @EWarren’s campaign — perhaps the most high-profile yet. https://t.co/tplkiQsRhp
Ah, I was waiting for the "Ayanna Pressley is a sellout" take after she endorsed Warren and here comes the most shameless hack of 2019 to fill the gap. I await the "Pressley is actually a neoliberal" move tomorrow. https://t.co/ckXD8zRQfr
The white gentrifiers turned on Ayanna Pressley real quick, didn't they
