Elizabeth Warren Has Quick Comeback at CNN Equality Town Hall

Senator Elizabeth Warren spoke at a televised forum on L.G.B.T.Q. issues in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Viral moments are coveted...

Viral moments are coveted in the Democratic primary race, where they can serve as a magnet for online donations and bring much-needed attention to candidates struggling to stand out in a large field.

Ms. Warren’s answer appeared likely to turn into one of those moments, even though she is hardly struggling to attract attention to her campaign, having risen in the polls to rival former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr.[1] as a leading contender for the Democratic nomination.

A video of her response at the forum immediately drew attention on Twitter, and the Warren campaign soon shared the moment on her feed[2] as well.

Below is an unedited transcript of the exchange:

CHRIS CUOMO: You ready for another question?

ELIZABETH WARREN: You bet.

CUOMO: Alright. Morgan Cox, real estate investment firm in Dallas, Texas. He is the chair of the Human Rights Campaign board of directors. Morgan, thank you.
