Obama Signals Concern About Radical 2020 Field

The former president spoke to a group of liberal donors in Washington, DC, on Friday and suggested that the far-left ideas articulated and pursued by some of the candidates in the Democrat primary could turn away potential voters.

Obama refrained from naming a specific candidate, but he, according to the Times, “cautioned that the universe of voters that could support a Democratic candidate — Democrats, independents, and moderate Republicans — are not driven by the same views reflected on ‘certain left-leaning Twitter feeds’ or ‘the activist wing of our party.’”

Pressley veered from her colleagues, throwing her weight behind Warren, who has also proposed ultra-far left proposals, including Medicare for All and an “Ultra-Millionaire” tax.

“For those who get stressed about robust primaries, I just have to remind you I had a very robust primary,” Obama added.

Obama has yet to throw his support behind any of the current Democrat candidates, including his former running mate and vice president Joe Biden (D).
