A war of words between the Democratic presidential candidates escalated a notch Thursday, with the campaign manager for Sen. Bernie Sanders reportedly accusing Hillary Clinton of running a smear campaign.

Jeff Weaver warned Sanders – raised in "rough and tumble" Brooklyn – won't take any Clinton attacks lying down, The Hill reports.

"If they want to engage in that kind of a campaign, they're going to see how a real New Yorker fights back," Weaver said on MSNBC, The Hill reports.

"There's been a lot of innuendo and unfair attacks, but they've really started to step them up, and as Sen. Sanders just said, he's not going to take it. He's the son of Brooklyn, born in New York. He knows how the rough and tumble of New York, and if that's the kind of campaign they want to run, he's fully prepared to run it."

Sanders Wednesday night blasted Clinton for calling him "quote-unquote unqualified," responding that's she the one who's unqualified to be president because accepts donations from Wall Street, supported the Iraq war and backs "disastrous" U.S. trade deals. 

The Clinton campaign shot back on Twitter.



According to The Hill, Weaver called Sanders' remarks an illustration of how "these are two very different campaigns, two very different candidates and two very different agendas for America."

"You know, she's really made a deal with the devil, and the devil always wants his due," Weaver added, The Hill reports. "So that time will come."
