Massachusetts Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren is one of many unsuccessful contenders from the 2020 presidential election.
Warren ran to become president and ultimately failed. During the Massachusetts senator’s campaign, she infamously embraced radical, expensive policies, yet failed to provide appropriate means by which these policies would be paid for.
In a new book titled “Persist,” Warren discussed her political loss and the factors she believes engendered it. According to Fox News, Warren predictably claimed in her book that anti-woman sexism led to her political demise in the race to become president last year.
Warren on Her Failure to Become President
In her memoir, Warren discusses “[running] against the shadows” of other female Democrats like Hillary Clinton and Martha Coakley. Warren also opined that Clinton’s failure to beat Trump in 2016 made the Democrat Party ultimately wary against nominating another female candidate to take on Trump in 2020.
The bottom 99 percent paid 7.2% of their total wealth in taxes last year. But the top one-tenth of one percent—the top millionaires and billionaires—paid 3.2%. Less than half as much. That’s not right. And that’s one reason why it’s time for a #WealthTax in America.

Additional segments in Warren’s book discuss her interactions with fans, big speaking crowds, and more. In a surprising twist, the Democrat senator somewhat acknowledges that failing to explain how to pay for her proposals didn’t help her. Warren admitted in “Persist” that this failure gave her rivals an advantage over her.
In March 2020, Warren formally ended her campaign to become the next president of the United States.
Since Losing the White House Race
Since Warren’s unsuccessful bid to become president, she’s continued as she was prior to the 2020 race. The Massachusetts senator still supports very extreme policies like high taxes, big government, and the works.
Long before Warren’s run for the White House, she’d already garnered a reputation for being extreme. Many Americans noted the parallels between Warren and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ far-left policies and proposals.
My new book, Persist, comes out on Tuesday. It’s a personal story, but it’s also about how we fight side by side and make each other stronger. Here’s where you can join our virtual tour events: https://t.co/F1IvsgnuDE pic.twitter.com/H13DBMxW3M

In recent years, many people have warned that far-left Democrats like Warren are ultimately not doing the party any favors. Since Warren’s loss in the 2020 presidential election, Democrats have arguably become even more radical. Aside from pushing for big taxes, the left now wants a 51st state, total federal control of state elections, and more.
Warren, meanwhile, is promoting her memoir. The Massachusetts senator maintains that “Persist” is all about Democrats making each other stronger. Warren also announced upcoming virtual tours for the book.
