“Doesn’t having a drink with Elizabeth sound pretty refreshing and inspiring right now? She’s great company — just ask her husband, Bruce,” the campaign said in an email to supporters Wednesday, including a gif of the couple clinking glasses.

“Elizabeth and Bruce like to kick back and catch up over a couple of beers. But if you win, you can order whatever drink you’d like — hot, cold, caffeinated, decaf, sweetened, unsweetened, sparkling, still, anything (the world is yours). And you’ll be able to talk with Elizabeth about what issues matter most to you, why you’re in this fight, and anything you want her to know.”

The emails advertising drinks with Warren, which have been sent to supporters in recent days, come as the Massachusetts Democrat rises in some primary polls. She has solidified her position as a top-tier candidate this week as two polls in crucial states place her near the top.

A poll of likely caucus-goers in Iowa released this week found Warren in a statistical tie for second place with Sen.

The survey showed her with a higher net favorable rating than any other candidate in the field, as 71 percent of likely caucus-goers see her favorably, while just 17 percent see her unfavorably.

Warren also came in second place in a poll of likely Democratic caucus voters in Nevada, again trailing Biden.

Warren has made significant investments in both states, hiring hefty campaign staffs to maintain her momentum. She’s also sought to buoy her support by releasing a bevy of policy platforms to rectify financial inequities and racial discrimination, tackle student debt and more.
