Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren has reportedly set up a presence in Tennessee in her quest to get elected president next year.
This, according to The Nashville Post, which reported that Elizabeth Henderson will serve as Warren’s Tennessee state director.
“According to several local Democratic hands, that makes Warren, newly atop some national and early-state polls, the first presidential candidate with staff working in Tennessee, more than four months before the state’s Democrats vote in the Super Tuesday primary,” The Nashville Post reported.
“Henderson previously worked on Karl Dean’s 2018 gubernatorial campaign, David Briley’s 2015 vice mayoral campaign and for The Wilderness Society and Organizing for Action. She has also worked with Run for Something, a group that supports progressive candidates running in down-ballot races.”
As The Tennessee Star reported earlier this month, Warren’s presidency could spell ruin for the stock market, at least according to what analysts predict.
“The stock market has already started to show negative impact from Warren’s campaign, analysts told Bloomberg, and her presidency could impact the stock market even further. The bank earnings season will begin October 15, the publication reports,” according to The Star.
The Royal Bank of Canada’s Lori Calvasina worries that a Warren presidency combined with Democratic control of the House would be “extremely challenging for stocks.”
Warren’s “sheer multitude” of policy plans would leave “U.S. equity investors with few safe havens,” Calvasina told Bloomberg.
Warren has pushed a plan for the economy called “A Plan For Economic Patriotism” in which the Massachusetts senator promises to “pursue an agenda of economic patriotism, using new and existing tools to defend and create quality American jobs and promote American industry.”
Also, as reported, Warren, Democratic Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg out-raised former vice president Joe Biden during the third quarter.
Sanders raised $25.3 million during the third quarter, which lasts from July to September, Buttigieg raised $19.1 million, and Biden raised $15 million, Politico reported.
