Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren Plan First Joint Appearance on Trail

With Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont not quite ready to transform himself into a campaign surrogate for Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee is getting the help of another darling of her party’s liberal base. Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts will campaign with Mrs. Clinton in Cincinnati on Monday, the first event that will feature the two women.
Before the 2014 midterm elections, Mrs. Clinton and Ms. Warren campaigned in Boston for Martha Coakley, the Democratic nominee for governor of Massachusetts. Aides said they exchanged pleasantries backstage about being grandmothers, but some eyebrows were raised when the two giants of the Democratic Party did not appear on stage at the same time.
In the past, Ms. Warren has been critical of Mrs. Clinton over her shifting position on legislation that would have made it harder for families to seek bankruptcy protection, but lately they have found a common enemy in the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Donald J. Trump.
Ms. Warren has emerged as something of a Trump slayer, taking to Twitter to counter his attacks and calling him “a small, insecure money grubber” at the Center for Popular Democracy’s recent annual gala. (Mr. Trump has responded in kind by calling Ms. Warren “goofy” and mocking her over allegations that she exaggerated her Native American heritage.)
Ms. Warren recently met privately with both Mrs. Clinton and James Hamilton, the Washington lawyer who is leading the campaign’s vetting of vice-presidential candidates, fueling speculation of an all-female ticket. Ms. Warren stopped by the Clinton campaign headquarters in Brooklyn this month, exciting young staff members with a simple message: “Don’t screw this up!”
Ms. Warren’s endorsement of Mrs. Clinton could do much to ease any concerns about unifying the party and to help bring Mr. Sanders’s supporters over to the Clinton corner.
The joint Ohio event comes as the campaign enters the final stretch before the Democratic convention in Philadelphia, where Mr. Sanders has vowed to take his liberal agenda to the party, even if it means a fight or protests.
He recently responded “yes” when asked on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” if he would vote for Mrs. Clinton, but he did not exactly offer a glowing endorsement of her policy positions. “The issue right here is, I’m going to do everything I can do to defeat Donald Trump,” Mr. Sanders said.
