African-American Newspaper Publisher Blasts Warren


An influential African-American newspaper publisher and community leader said that Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has courted only far-left political activists while ignoring average Massachusetts voters, reports:

In an interview, [Frederick] Hurst—an influential leader in the African American community and former commissioner on the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination—said he is “not impressed” with Warren’s Western Massachusetts campaign.

“She comes to Western Massachusetts, but not the way she ought to come,” Hurst said. “She meets with a narrow group of folks. Most people don’t know her.”

Hurst said he believes Warren needs to meet with “everyday folks” rather than committed political activists. He added, “I don’t know the lady, and I run a newspaper. That amazes me.”
