Elizabeth Warren have formed a last-minute super PAC to boost her candidacy in Nevada and are plunging $1 million into television and other ads in the race’s final days, despite the Massachusetts senator’s previous outspoken opposition to such groups. The group, which calls itself the Persist PAC, filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday and immediately booked nearly $800,000 in television ads, running a 30-second spot that features footage of former President Barack Obama praising Ms. Warren as an advocate for the middle class. Ms. Warren’s campaign issued a statement early Wednesday saying her opposition to super PACs remained unchanged: “Since day one of this campaign, she has made clear that she thinks all of the candidates should lock arms together and say we don’t want super PACs and billionaires to be deciding our Democratic nominee.” The statement did not explicitly call for the group to stop airing ads. Super PACs must operate independently of candidates, and their donors are eventually disclosed, though that disclosure will come long after Nevada holds its caucuses on Saturday. At the last Democratic debate, in New Hampshire, Ms. Warren had used the fact that neither she nor Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota had a super PAC as a cudgel to hit the rest of their opponents. “Everyone on this stage except Amy and me is either a billionaire or is receiving help from PACs that can do unlimited spending,” she said then. On Tuesday, a super PAC supportive of Ms. Klobuchar, which calls itself the Kitchen Table Conversations PAC, also began reserving more than $400,000 in television time in Nevada and South Carolina. The first ad focuses on Ms. Klobuchar’s advocacy for women who have been kicked out of hospitals after giving birth. The Klobuchar campaign stood by its opposition to super PACs while not explicitly calling for the new group to pull its ads. With the two new super PACs, every candidate who will be Read more: The New York Times

Without permission Warren is a fraud. I’m sure she would be happy to explain her case. It shows me that she’s trying to stay in the race because it’s that important to her.Perhaps she has to cave. I commend her for doing so. Why let others skate by with far less ethical standards than her. ewarren Interesting how 'millionaire' politicians [who accept support from many sources] to run for the Presidency-are calling out a 2nd billionaire candidate who wouldn't be beholden to any one group because they contributed to his campaign...🙄voters really need to think...

'Sad' but the money must come from somewhere-What a waste of good money? When push comes to shove they all do exactly the opposite and then make excuses and justify why they had to. She is a white Native American, that hates (loves) PAC money, hates rich people 😉... Do I remember someone slamming Pete on the debate stage for having a wine cave fundraiser? This reeks of hypocrisy. Even if she didn't deliberately seek out the funding from the super PAC, it's not like she will reject it. Or will she? Desperate times call for desperate measures.

The party is over! Put on your pity party hat and move along! But I do agree, it is wrong that Bloombutt has done nothing to get to the debate but spend money! All the other candidates have worked hard to get there! Time to throw the towel leilacleigh

Democratic presidential candidate Warren gets super PAC help despite past oppositionDemocratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren will get help in the final da... Desperate much? Warren = 🐍👋 Super PAC loves Native Americans

She is a real crazy loser. Don't donate one penny to her she couldn't win a janitor contest Oh shut up! lib_crusher What a turn her political career has made the last 8 weeks, just sad. You have to do what you have to do Purity tests will cost us the election VoteBlueNoMatterWho NeverTrump Never forget

Shows people will do anything to win...even this. You mean to tell me fauxcohontas is a liar? Who knew? Desperate times call for ... measures you previously said you wouldn’t do. Haha. I smell desperation She’ll get support from all fake Natives.

Trash drop out already.🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🤣🤣🤣

PopulismUpdates Desperate times call for desperate measures . If at first you can't erase her and shove Bloomberg down our throats then why not try misleading headlines to harm her. She added: 'So, if you really want to live where you say, then put your money where your mouth is and say no to the PACs.' Lol

She is done. It's ok! She's the most honest candidate of all of them!! She truly wants too save America & the environment!!! ewarren criticized PeteButtigieg creepy JoeBiden using millionaire and billionaire Now she doing it really another hypocrite plus she constantly fighting corruption now she is one of the swampier lol

The media refuses to even MENTION her name and NOW this is the story you choose to write? Unbelievable. Disappointing. Infuriating. 😬😬😬 Supported m4a to get early support, then bailed. Opposed super PACs until she needed money. Is there really any question whether she's right for the job? I prefer my candidates to have a moral compass and hopefully a little resolve.

Since when are Politicians firm in their beliefs?🤔 Well that’s awkward.

Pro-Klobuchar super PAC pumps money into Nevada and South CarolinaA super PAC supporting Amy Klobuchar is dropping a seven-figure ad buy into Nevada and South Carolina, giving the senator a much-needed financial boost Yea! Ask the jobless! Part time jobs ! Trump’s economy now . Farmers,coal miners and auto workers are still waiting for welfare checks. Mercedes Benz is laying off 10,000 workers. Pier 21 is going into bankruptcy. Wells Fargo laid off many, HBSC bank is laying off 35,000 workers. Dark Money Amy We have enough of this garbage already

Nice going, NYT. Were you just being spiteful in wording the synopsis of this article in such a way that people think she hypocritically solicited this help? 'Here's your coverage, Warren fans.' Or are you actively against her candidacy? WarrenMediaBlackout WhereIsWarren JistArgo If someone challenges me to a sword fight and I bring my Swiss Army Knife Ranger with nail file, scissors, spoon, hole punch etc it’s a bad idea. IDGAF.

ewarren is failing and all the super PACs in the world can't help her.... Difference between Warren and Beto. He stands by his principles. No PACs funding means no PACs. Excellent, Say El directorio comercial de Colombia That may hurt her credibility, she has staked her reputation on honesty. No? It only took them a week to reverse their own comments

I hope a question about this gets asked today at the debate.

Because she does not tell the truth. Not genuine Pocahontas NevadaCaucus Go home !!!!! Everyone has super PAC now. Except for 2 billionaires. Isn't that ironic? I guess Steyer and Bloomberg can attack Bernie/Warren now. lol PopulismUpdates cc hunterwalk 😂😂😂 'Everyone on this stage except Amy and me is either a billionaire or is receiving help from PACs that can do unlimited spending. So if you really want to live what you say, then put your money where your mouth is and say no to the PACs.' - ewarren

A super-pac equates to exactly what they are calling out Bloomberg for doing so I don't want to hear any more squawking about Bloomberg spending $$ to buy the election. In other words collecting other people's money to fund her campaign while criticizing MikeBloomberg for using his own money. Haha NOW you cover her. JFC.

What a hypocrite, and what a waste!
