Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders to be frozen out of Biden cabinet, report says – By Matt Mathers (The Independent) / Nov 11 2020
‘We cannot afford to put any seats in jeopardy,’ says Democrat Gerry Connolly
Left-wing politicians Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are reportedly set to be frozen out of president-elect Joe Biden’s cabinet amid concerns the party could lose more seats in upcoming elections.
Democrats clung onto their House majority but lost five seats while Republicans picked up six and secured their majority in the Senate, barring a major upset in Georgia’s runoff election.
Each side of the party is blaming the other for the poor results, which came after four years of White House chaos under Donald Trump. Left-wing Democrats say the party’s offer on progressive causes was not strong enough.
Meanwhile, centrist Democrats say the left’s ‘socialist’ messaging puts off Americans living outside big cities and urban areas.
