Kingston Highlights Warren’s ‘Persistence’ on One-Year Anniversary: Her Persistent Drive to Further Her Own Ambitions, Divide Americans, Fail Massachusetts
Republican U.S. Senate candidate John Kingston weighed-in on the one-year anniversary of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s “nevertheless, she persisted” moment Wednesday by highlighting the range of ways the senior senator from Massachusetts persists in putting her own political interests over the wellbeing of Massachusetts residents and the nation as a whole.
“Sen. Warren is certainly persistent,” Kingston said.
“Warren persists in focusing on her presidential ambitions rather than fighting every day to represent hardworking Massachusetts families,” he said, referring to a recent report documenting her extensive focus on running for president over the last year.
“She persists in using inflammatory rhetoric to divide Americans against one another in order to score quick political points — even at the moments that should most unify us as a people,” he continued, reflecting on Warren’s divisive comments made on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
“She persists in increasing the dysfunction in Washington by refusing to set aside ideology and find common cause with her fellow Americans,” he noted, pointing to Warren’s lead role in causing the recent shutdown of the federal government.
“She persists in demonizing American businesses and business people that create good jobs and drive our economy — even when she could be fighting to bring those same good jobs to Massachusetts,” Kingston said, noting Warren’s failure to advocate for Boston in the city’s bid for the new Amazon headquarters and her record of negative rhetoric directed toward the online retail giant.
“She persists in vilifying our men and women in blue who sacrifice every day to protect our communities and keep our families safe,” Kingston said, referring to Warren’s past comments conflating police with occupying armies.
“She persists in putting politics before what is right, even in the most obvious of cases,” he continued, pointing to Warren’s refusal to condemn Democrat Sen. Al Franken’s admitted instances of sexual harassment.
“Sen. Warren persists in being one of the most divisive members of the United States Senate,” Kingston said. “Warren’s singular pursuit of a presidential campaign in 2020 has contributed to the toxic environment in Washington and denied Massachusetts families the dedicated voice they deserve in Congress.”
