Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., said Thursday that the Democratic primary last year was "fair," moving away from the comments she made last week.

"I agree with what Donna Brazile has said over the last few days; that while there was some bias at the DNC, the overall 2016 primary process was fair and Hillary [Clinton] made history," Warren said in an interview with MassLive.

Last week, when asked by CNN's Jake Tapper if the Democratic National Committee had been "rigged" to favor Clinton, Warren answered, "yes."

"We've got to hold this party accountable," she continued. "When Tom Perez was elected to chair of the DNC, the very first conversation I had with him was to say, 'You've got to put together a Democratic Party in which everybody can have confidence that the party is working for Democrats rather than Democrats working for the party.'"

Warren added that "this is a test for Tom Perez. And either he's going to succeed by bringing Bernie Sanders and Bernie Sanders's representatives into the process, and they're going to say it's fair, it works, we all believe it, or he's going to fail. And I very much hope he succeeds. I hope for Democrats everywhere. I hope for Bernie and all of Bernie's supporters that he's going to succeed."

A spokeswoman for Warren later told MassLive that Warren believes, as she said last week, that the DNC was rigged, but that the primary itself was not.
