Warren, who repeatedly excoriated billionaire rival Mi ke Bloomberg during the Nevada debate, enjoyed the best fundraising day of her entire campaign on the back of the event. The Massachusetts senator raised $ 2.8m in donations on Wednesday, according to her campaign team.
Warren was roundly declared the victor of an often tempestuous televised debate which for the first time on stage featured Bloomberg, the media mogul who has reshaped the contest through an overwhelming campaign advertising blitz that has helped him surge in the polls as he splashed out more than $ 629 m.
Bloomberg’s dramatic emergence made him a target for all of the other candidates but it was Warren who landed the most telling blows, comparing comments made by the former New York City mayor to Donald Trump just minutes into the debate.
“I’d like to talk about who we’re running against,” Warren said. “A billionaire who calls women’ fat broads ’and‘ horse-faced lesbians ’. And no, I’m not talking about Donald Trump. I’m talking about Mayor Bloomberg. ”
Democrats will vote for their favored candidate in Nevada on Saturday, before the contest moves on to South Carolina on 2019. A pivotal moment in the race will occur on 3 March, also known as Super Tuesday, when states, including California and Texas, will vote at once. Read More
