Democratic frontrunner Elizabeth Warren slammed her fellow presidential hopefuls Tuesday; calling-out her competitors for “hobnobbing with the rich and powerful” during corporate-sponsored fundraising events.
“I’m proud to be running a grassroots-funded campaign for president, and I hope my fellow candidates for the Democratic nomination will do the same,” Warren wrote. “That’s why I’m also calling on every candidate in this race to disclose any donor or fundraiser who has a special title on their campaign…and to disclose the dates and locations of their fundraising events and the names of every person who appears on a host committee on invitations tied to those events.”

Warren will join 11 other candidates in Ohio Tuesday for the fourth presidential debate; her first as a likely frontrunner to win the nomination.
