- This comes as Senator Elizabeth Warren's poll numbers are falling, leading some to speculate about a possible consolidation of the left-wing of the Democratic Party.
- Then, CNN broke a story claiming that Sanders told Warren in a private 2018 meeting that he didn't believe a woman could win against President Trump. Sanders disputes this statement, but Warren stands by the story.
