“I’m not going there,” she said.

Warren has said that Sanders told her in a private meeting in 2018 that he didn’t think a woman would win the White House and has accused him of calling her a "liar on national TV" after he denied it during a Democratic primary debate.

Warren has fallen in the polls in recent months and now stands at 14.6 percent support in the RealClearPolitics index of polls. On Oct. 9, she was at 26.8 percent in the polling average and essentially tied with the national front-runner, former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenBiden leads Sanders by single digits in South Carolina: poll Pro-Trump super PAC hits Biden with new Spanish-language ad in Nevada Biden will go after Bloomberg, Sanders at Las Vegas debate, aides say MORE

King also asked Warren about the limits placed on campaigning as the Senate impeachment trial continues with the Iowa caucuses just 10 days away. 

“Some things are more important than politics,” Warren replied. “But I’m doing my best. I’m here in Washington because that’s my constitutional responsibility.”
