Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) attacked Joe Biden for holding a “swanky” fundraiser the first week of his presidential campaign, but several of the donors who attended it appeared at fundraisers for her 2018 Senate race.
Kenneth Jarin, a lawyer who served as a host for Biden, told The Philadelphia Inquirer that Warren’s attacks on her 2020 rival were “preposterous.”
