Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren touted the female Democratic presidential candidates' winning election records after opponent Bernie Sanders denied he had told Warren a woman could not win a presidential election during a 2018 meeting between the two senators.
"Can a woman beat Donald Trump?"
Sanders moments earlier had vehemently denied a report that he told Warren a woman couldn't win the presidency, referencing in his defense a video of him decades ago talking about how women could be president.
Later in the exchange, Warren touted the recent performance of female candidates the Democratic Party's history of breaking barriers with its nominees for president, particularly in the cases of John F. Kennedy and Barack Obama.
"Since Donald Trump was elected president, women candidates have outperformed men candidates in competitive races, and in 2018 we took back the House, we took back state houses because of women candidates and women voters," she said.
