Looks like Warren is desperate for some votes…
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) issued glowing praise to her former Democrat challenger Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) over his gun-grabbing efforts, following his exit from the crowded primary field Monday.
“Thank you @EricSwalwell for your commitment to making gun reform front and center in this election,” she tweeted Monday. “Gun violence is a public health crisis, and I’ll keep fighting alongside you for a safer future,” she promised. “The American people are lucky to have you in this fight.”

Swalwell became the first Democrat to leave the crowded Democrat primary field, telling supporters that his campaign had to “look at how much money we were raising, where we were in the polls.”
I want thank my supporters & friends, my staff, & my family for making this journey possible. I’ll never forget the people I met & lessons I learned while traveling around our great nation. Though our campaign is ending our mission to end gun violence is just beginning… pic.twitter.com/voEJRpYd2R

Warren has also expressed support for some of Swalwell’s radical ideas, especially the possibility of an “assault weapons” ban.
“Gun violence is a national health emergency in this country and we need to treat it like that. So what can we do? We can do the things that are sensible,” she said, listing off universal background checks and a ban on supposed “weapons of war.”
