Clinton Basks in Glow of Women Senators, With One Absence

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren was absent from Monday’s fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s campaign, according to NBC News.

Warren was invited, but did not attend the event, one of the largest of Clinton’s 2016 campaign, as she is not yet backing Clinton or any candidate in the 2016 Democratic Party.

Clinton's backers are convinced she'll come on board eventually. "Elizabeth, I think in her course of time, she's going to come out for Hillary," California Sen. Barbara Boxer told MSNBC's Steve Kornacki Monday afternoon.

Despite Warren’s absence, there were 13 chairs lined up on stage behind Clinton’s podium Monday night, one for each Democratic woman in the Senate — all of whom already endorsed Clinton.
