Democrats need to ‘turn up the heat’ on Tuberville, says Warren


The senator Elizabeth Warren urges his fellow Democrats to step up the pressure on the senator. Tommy Tuberville as he continues to block hundreds of military promotions because of the Pentagon’s abortion policy.

With Democrats individually speaking out against the Alabama Republican, “it’s time for us to up the ante on this and for all Democrats to get involved,” said Warren (Democrat of Mass.) Thursday morning on MSNBC, adding that “there is no dissent” on the subject among Democrats.

Warren, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, is among the most prominent voices on the left opposing Tuberville’s nine-month suspension of senior military appointments. Many other Democrats, including the Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Jack Reed (DR.I.) and Senator. Dick Durbin (D-Illinois), have also spoken out over the months in the Senate and on social media. Some prominent Republicans, including the Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnellexpressed their opposition to the grapples, while others sided with Tuberville.
