The National Organization for Women is urging Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., not to endorse fellow progressive Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in the Democratic presidential race, The Associated Press reported.

After dropping out of the White House race Thursday, Warren said she wanted to "take a deep breath" and "spend a little time" deliberating over whether to throw her support behind Sanders.

Meanwhile, other Democratic dropouts like ex-New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, immediately backed Joe Biden.

In an interview with AP, NOW President Toni Van Pelt urged Warren not too "rush into" anything.

"She has a lot of leverage right now. We do trust her to make the right decisions on how to proceed. But we'd like her not to rush this," Van Pelt said.

"We think that our constituents, our members, will not necessarily think of Sanders as the best choice," she said, noting “we wouldn't have the Violence Against Women Act if it wasn't for Biden's leadership."

Biden introduced the act in 1990.

"Sanders doesn't have a record,” Van Pelt told AP.

"He's really, as far as we know, done next to nothing for women and for our issues," she claimed.

In a statement to Newsweek, Rosemary Boeglin, a spokesperson for the Sanders campaign, defended Sanders' record.

"No attempt at revisionist history can change the basic facts: Bernie Sanders is the only presidential candidate who has consistently stood on the side of women,” she said.
