“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 BidenThe Hill's Campaign Report: Runoff elections in Texas, Alabama set for Tuesday Biden campaign slams White House attacks on Fauci as 'disgusting' Biden lets Trump be Trump 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.”
