Iconic conservative blogger Matt Drudge, editor and founder of the influential Drudge Report, makes a rare public announcement on who he thought was going to be heading to victory in the Democratic 2020 primary battle.
From The Hill: Matt Drudge declared that the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination is “Elizabeth Warren‘s nomination to lose” in a rare commentary late Wednesday on Twitter to his more than 500,000 followers.
The tweet from the reclusive Drudge also includes a photo of a Monday Warren rally in New York City’s Washington Square Park that drew an estimated 20,000 people.

President Trump dismissed the size of Warren’s crowd a couple days after the event.
“Anybody that can’t get people standing in the middle of Manhattan in the most densely populated area of the country — anybody could do that. I think more Democrats should do it,” Trump told reporters traveling with him on Air Force One.
Warren has been steadily climbing in the polls but still trails former Vice President Joe Biden in several national surveys.
Drudge, the founder of the conservative news aggregate website “The Drudge Report,” rarely tweets from his personal account and usually deletes messages within 24 hours. He also doesn’t follow anyone on Twitter.
