'She Is a Fraud': Campos-Duffy Says Warren's 2020 Campaign Would Be 'Dead on Arrival'
Fox News contributor Rachel Campos-Duffy blasted Sen. Elizabeth Warren on "Outnumbered," saying that her possible 2020 presidential campaign would be "dead on arrival."
Warren (Mass.) announced in a video to supporters Monday that she would be launching an exploratory committee to explore a presidential run.
She argued in her video that government "has been bought and paid for by a bunch of billionaires and giant corporations that think they get to dictate the rules that affect everyone."
Campos-Duffy echoed the sentiments of Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel, who tweeted that Warren, 69, is "a total fraud."
Senator Warren couldn’t be more out of touch. Americans will see her for what she is: another extreme far-left obstructionist and a total fraud.

"As far as I'm concerned, this campaign of Elizabeth Warren is dead on arrival," Campos-Duffy said, adding that Warren felt "forced" to release a DNA analysis on Native American heritage in October.
Campos-Duffy said that if Warren did officially run for office, it would be a "disaster."
"It would bring up all the identity politics people in middle America, Independents that she needs to win over, would absolutely be reminded of," she said.
Washington Examiner Editorial Director Hugo Gurdon added that he believes Warren can't appeal to broader spectrum of Americans.
"She is kind of yesterday's person. Her time has already come and gone," Gurdon said.
He noted the Democratic Party’s focus on younger voters and said Warren doesn't necessarily stand out among other potential candidates.
"What struck me about [Warren's] video was she talked about the middle class, she didn't emphasize Massachusetts... she mentioned her military connections. It was all fairly formulaic stuff, which I think actually was a bit of a stumble as a video," he said.
