Politico: Conservative PAC takes aim at Warren during book tour

BOSTON — America Rising PAC, a conservative group that hounded Hillary Clinton following the release of her book “Hard Choices” in 2014, is about to do the same to Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

Warren’s latest book, “This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Middle Class,” will be released on Tuesday. The Massachusetts Democrat will set out on a book tour with stops in New York and Massachusetts this week.

 “We view book launch as the soft launch of her presidential campaign. We’ll do the same to her as we did with Hillary Clinton in 2014,” said America Rising executive director Colin Reed.

In 2014, the group maintained a “war room” that monitored Clinton’s media appearances in conjunction with her book.

The group plans a similar strategy with Warren. It will build and maintain opposition research, use video tracking, Freedom of Information Act and public records, and deploy rapid-response communications to “make Warren’s life difficult” during her 2018 Senate reelection campaign, according to a memo outlining the group’s efforts. The memo also said the goal is “to damage her 2020 prospects.”
