Warren Says She’s the Only Candidate With Executive Branch Experience

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) on Friday claimed she is the only candidate in the race with prior experience in the executive branch of the federal government, despite the fact that she’s running against a former vice president, Joe Biden.

“Let me remind you, I think I’m the only one who’s running for president who’s actually been on the executive side,” Warren said during a town hall event in Newton, Iowa. She took credit for getting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) “up and operational” during the Obama administration, although she was passed over to be its director.

Warren’s rival Biden was not only Barack Obama’s vice president, but his 2020 campaign has heavily focused on his record in the Obama administration. He even made the case on the debate stage last October that he was critical to whipping votes to create the CFPB, although Warren responded by downplaying his contribution.

On Friday, Warren also argued that her experience gives her a superior grasp of “agency power.” Her campaign platform includes numerous promises to aggressively use executive power to accomplish her policy goals, such as a ban on fracking that experts say would cost millions of jobs.
