Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren likes what she sees in fellow Democrat and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is running for president.
"I love what Bernie is talking about. I think all the presidential candidates should be out talking about the big issues," Warren told the Boston Herald
Warren would not commit to endorsing Sanders or campaigning with him in the future. In fact, Warren has yet to endorse anyone in the small field of Democrats ahead of next year's primary.
Warren is, however, impressed with Sanders' approach to the campaign thus far.
"Bernie's out talking about the issues that the American people want to hear about," Warren told the Herald.
When asked if she thinks Sanders can win the nomination and earn a spot on the presidential ballot, Warren avoided the question.
"Bernie is there on the issues. That's what matters to a lot of people," she said.
Warren turned down several calls to join the presidential race, including one from a super PAC
set up in hopes she would run.
Warren took office in 2013 and is seen by many in the Democratic Party as a rising star
Conservatives, however, discount her for her lack of political experience and her liberal views. Others think Warren could pull Hillary Clinton further to the left during the presidential campaign, which might end up helping the GOP win the presidential election.
"You've got the energy of the Elizabeth Warren faction kind of driving the agenda, pulling Hillary Clinton further to the left, which, by the way, I think is useful for us in the general election next year," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in May
Regardless, Warren supporters, including the Ready for Warren super PAC, are beginning to back Sanders' White House bid, USA Today reported last week
