Rove: Warren Could Give Hillary ‘A Run for Her Money’

Former George W. Bush Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove said that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) could give Hillary Clinton “a run for her money” on Monday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show.”

“She [Warren] would certainly give her [Hillary] her scare. Remember, this contest opens up in some places that are not particularly friendly to Hillary Clinton…Elizabeth Warren’s hard-left prescriptions on the economy sing to the heart of Democratic primary voters. So, yeah I think she could give her a run for her money. I don’t know, at the end of the day, if she can beat her” Rove stated.

He added of Hillary “She went out and tried to borrow Barack Obama and Elizabeth Warren by saying corporations and businesses don’t create jobs, and it was so transparently–sort of unnatural to her that she didn’t get any applause from anybody. I think the problem with Hillary Clinton is, what is it–that she wants to do as president that gives the American people the sense that she’d be up to the job. What is it that she has done?”
