Democratic senators seeking the White House will be stuck in Washington rather than Iowa at a critical moment.

There are many ways Elizabeth Warren can continue her presidential campaign from Washington during President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial: Surrogates in Iowa, national TV appearances and on social media.

“Of course it matters,” Warren said in an interview this week. “We just did a 3½-hour selfie line. Don’t tell me it doesn’t matter to do face to face.”

With the impeachment trial set to start next week, the standoff between the House and Senate on Trump’s impeachment trial has created a massive headache for the five senators running for president. Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Michael Bennet and Cory Booker can’t skip a historic impeachment trial for the campaign trail, and so they look set to be stuck in Washington during the climax of the race for Iowa and New Hampshire.
