Elizabeth Warren; Ready4Work; W.A.V.E; Cole Pepper
On Monday’s First Coast Connect with Melissa Ross, we discussed Democratic presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren.
Tom Steyer and Pete Buttigieg dropped out of the race for president. This leaves voters with six democratic candidates to choose from: Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Warren, Mike Bloomberg, Amy Klobuchar and Tulsi Gabbard.
We spoke with a surrogate for Warren’s campaign, Fredrick Joseph, about why voters should choose Warren.
