Democratic State Rep. Michael Pedersen told NBC News that his support solidified for Klobuchar after Tuesday night’s debate in Iowa, amid a growing feud between Warren and fellow progressive Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
“After the debate, I saw everybody pairing up — Sen. Warren and Sanders competition against one another, and then everyone else. I just think those two as a team, Sanders and Warren, they don’t appeal widely across the nation as Sen. Klobuchar,” Pedersen told NBC.
While he likes both Warren and Klobuchar and is friendly with staff on both campaigns, he views Klobuchar as having broader appeal across the country.
“I think that Sen. Klobuchar is more electable across the country than Sen. Warren,” Pedersen said. “She has a proven track record of winning in Trump country. And Sen. Warren has a proven track record of winning in liberal northeast.”
