The scene tonight from a sudden turn of events in Flint, Mich. “He does not have those experiences. He is a white Jewish man," a Sanders spokesman told reporters.
Two dozen aides and allies let loose on what might have been.
Ruby Cramer“If she had been that Warren — fierce, direct, naming names — then yes, there would have been other issues including sexism to navigate. But it also would have been more true to her."

The incident comes at a time of increasing concern about the rise of white nationalism in the country and as Sanders runs to become the first Jewish president.

More details from @MiriamElder and me on a disturbing incident last night in Phoenix, where a man shouted “Heil Hitler” and did the Nazi salute behind Bernie Sanders on stage
Ruby CramerSanders said he's seen plenty of protesters at his events — many of them Trump supporters — "but this was something different," he told reporters in Phoenix today, describing the swastika as "unspeakable" & the "most detestable symbol in modern history."
Warren, once a top contender for the Democratic nomination, is dropping out of the race after a disappointing month of primaries.
Ruby CramerElizabeth Warren tells her staff this morning: “We also did it by having fun and by staying true to ourselves. We ran from the heart. We ran on our values. We ran on treating everyone with respect and dignity."
Running for president is a weird and lonely experience. At least Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar, two salty candidates, had their own kind of friendship.
Ruby CramerShe did not endorse him yesterday... But Amy Klobuchar & Bernie Sanders, two pols who agree ideologically on almost nothing, share a certain saltiness, a playful repartee, and a little-known friendship dating back a decade.

Ruby CramerIn 2016, Bernie Sanders did not disavow support from the @NationalNurses super PAC, which spent about $5m. They have endorsed him in 2020 as well, and it seems like they have started spending, most recently a six-figure radio buy in Nevada

The caucus “embarrassed” the party and “undermined public confidence” in the process,” the CBC wrote in a letter last week urging Perez to take some responsibility for the mess
Ruby CramerOk now that the dust has settled a bit, can we go back to Yang for a second? Revisited @katherinemiller’s piece before talking to him today, and it does such an excellent and textured job of capturing what exactly made him a new kind of political candidate
“This campaign demonstrated is that the institutional gateways are not once they once were,” Yang said in an interview on Tuesday.

The Iowa caucus results are slowly coming in, and Sanders' exact finish is still uncertain.
