GOP Strategist O'Connell: Warren Is Clinton's Biggest Threat

GOP strategist Ford O’Connell and Democratic strategist Rick Ungar joined "America's Forum" host John Bachman Wednesday on Newsmax TV to discuss the top political news of the day, including Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren's growing popularity among potential voters.

O'Connell, meanwhile, said Clinton does face a challenge from Warren, and that many Republicans believe she will run for office. 

"Rick may not want to hear this, but Elizabeth Warren is the biggest single threat to Hillary capturing the nomination in 2016," said O'Connell. And if Clinton can't "fire up blue collar voters and voters under 30," she may have difficulty defeating Warren.

He said Warren is the candidate most in line with the Democratic Party's base, calling her the "Democrats' version of Ted Cruz," the Texas Republican senator.
