Warren saw her numbers slip after her third- and fourth-place finishes in Iowa and New Hampshire, respectively, but she enjoyed a fundraising surge after a strong debate performance in Las Vegas this week in which she went on the offensive against her rivals, chiefly billionaire Michael BloombergMichael BloombergFormer Bloomberg staffer seeks class-action lawsuit over layoffs Bloomberg spent over 0M on presidential campaign The Hill's Campaign Report: Officials in spotlight over coronavirus response MORE.

The Massachusetts lawmaker raised eyebrows after she launched particularly piercing broadsides against the former New York City mayor over his past rhetoric about women and the stop-and-frisk policing policy he oversaw.

“I’d like to talk about who we’re running against — a billionaire who calls women fat broads and horse-faced lesbians.

I’m talking about Mayor Bloomberg,” Warren said in her opening remarks. “Democrats will not win if we have a nominee with a history ... of harassing women and supporting racist policies like redlining and stop and frisk. ... Democrats take a huge risk if we substitute one arrogant billionaire for another.” 

The 10-day fundraising uptick is a much-needed boost for Warren, who finished January with just $2.3 million in cash on hand, the lowest of any of the top seven 2020 Democrats.
