Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., harshly attacked former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg in the Democrats' debate Tuesday night because her hatred of him is stronger than her desire to win the party's presidential nomination, Democratic strategist James Carville told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Wednesday.
"The takeaway is Elizabeth Warren hates Michael Bloomberg more than she wants to win," Carville said.
When asked what the strategy behind this attack was when Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is the frontunner and, therefore, would be the most logical opponent to concentrate on, Carville said, "I think she doesn't want to attack Bernie because she's scared she'll get primaried in 2024.
"Her attacks on Bloomberg probably help her raise money, maybe she genuinely dislikes him, but it wasn't intended to get her any more votes. It was maybe to stay alive a little bit longer."
Mediaite posted a clip of Carville's remarks.
Warren went as far in her confrontations with Bloomberg to state that the Democratic Party "will never trust him" as she lashed into him over over his alleged offensive remarks to women, which he has denied.
