Elizabeth Warren has long criticized super PACs. Nevertheless, she has Persist PAC.
Speaking to reporters in Las Vegas on Thursday, the Massachusetts senator did not disavow the newly formed PAC backing her even though she has long said she would only rely on small donors to fund her campaign.
She said that if all the men in the presidential race have a super PAC or are billionaires, then she and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar shouldn’t be the only two candidates at a disadvantage.
“So, here’s where I stand: if all the candidates want to get rid of Super PACs, count me in,” she said. “I’ll lead the charge. But that’s how it has to be. It can’t be the case that a bunch of people keep them and only one or two don’t.”
