And Wednesday, liberal groups including MoveOn.org, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Democracy for America, and Progressives United started directing their ire at not just Third Way but Rep. Allyson Schwartz, D-Pa., an honorary cochair of the group who is also the nominal front-runner in the Pennsylvania gubernatorial primary. In effect, they told the congresswoman she had to choose Warren over Third Way if she wanted their support.
A chorus of groups aligned with the liberal wing of the party – from the Progressive Change Campaign Committee to Howard Dean’s Democracy for America and Russ Feingold’s Progressives United – responded by attacking Third Way as a Wall Street-funded front group.
