Democrats gather for unity rally for candidates in Massachusetts

Democrats gathered for a unity rally for candidates in Massachusetts on Sunday, days after the state's primary elections.

The event was held at the Cambridge Community center, with notices taped at the entrances indicating the event was being filmed for political purposes by the campaign of U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Those notices also contained the line "Paid for by Elizabeth for MA."

Congressional nominee Ayanna Pressley was at the event, less than a week after her historic primary win on Tuesday.

"Everyday, we are drinking from a fire hose of insults and assault from that man occupying the White House," Pressley said.

Jay Gonzalez, the Democratic candidate running against Gov. Charlie Baker, also was in attendance at the event, taking a jab at his opponent in the process.

"With Donald Trump setting the bar so low, nice and not crazy seems pretty good," Gonzalez said. "But it is not good enough."

Senator Elizabeth Warren took the stage to thunderous cheers and applause.

"We've got 58 days until Election Day," Warren said. "I don't know about you, but I can't wait."

Warren is running on the one-word slogan "PERSIST."

And persist she did... in attacking President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans at the event.

"For almost two years now, the only thing the American people have gotten from Donald Trump and the Republicans is chaos, corruption and hatefulness," Warren said. "But listen up, Mr. President. Tick-tock, tick-tock."

Later on in the event, Warren commented on the anonymous New York Times editorial that questioned President Trump's fitness for office, supposedly written by a White House insider.

"If it is the case that people in the administration believe the president can't do his job, then there is a constitutional path for what to do," Warren said.

Warren says if the administration officials don't believe Trump is unfit, then they can't stand in the way of him doing his job.
