Sanders appeared to knock his Senate colleague in a tweet Wednesday referencing corporate Democrats supporting “anybody but Bernie,” but he denied it was a shot at his fellow progressive.
“That tweet was not about Elizabeth Warren at all. Not at all. Elizabeth is a friend of mine, and we’re going to run what I hope are issue-oriented campaigns,” Sanders told CNN’s Chris CuomoChristopher (Chris) Charles CuomoTed Cruz mocks CNN over naked Chris Cuomo in wife’s yoga video Minneapolis mayor: No change in position on calls to defund police after being booed Trump says he believes Scarborough ‘got away with murder’ MORE on “Cuomo Primetime.”
“This was, though, a very strong statement about a group called Third Way, and you know that Third Way is the corporatist wing of the Democratic Party,” he continued.
Sanders’s remarks come hours after he referenced a Politico article about how Democrats are running to Warren’s campaign in a bid to block him from getting the nomination.
The two candidates will appear on the debate stage on different nights next week, avoiding a face-off for the time being.
