2020 Democrat hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is cancelling campaign ads after a massive plunge in the polls. According to new reports, Warren has canceled $500,000 worth of campaign ads in South Carolina.
Her campaign also canceled $60,000 worth of ads in Nevada ahead of the Democrat debate later this month. Mike Bloomberg surged past her in the latest Quinnipiac and HarrisX polls.
The reports are stirring speculation Warren could drop out of the race as she struggles to maintain voter support. Thus far, the senator has rejected such claims.
“The fight we’re in, the fight to save our democracy, is an uphill battle, but our campaign is built for the long haul and were just getting started,” she said.
