Sen. Charles Schumer said his senatorial colleague Elizabeth Warren may be coming on strong — but his bet on who’s most likely to win the Democratic primary for the 2016 White House stands firmly with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“Hillary hasn’t told me, and I haven’t dared ask her,” he said, on “State of the Union” on CNN. “But I’ll bet she’s running, I’ll bet she’ll be a great candidate, and I’ll bet she’ll win by a large majority.”

He went on, the New York Daily News reported: “And then Democrats can help the middle class whose incomes have been declining for 15 years in a very united way.”

Mr. Schumer also caveated his remarks with a nod at Ms. Warren’s rising popularity.

“Elizabeth Warren is, even if people don’t agree with her, constructive,” Mr. Schumer said the New York Daily News reported. “She’s working hard to move things in her direction. And that’s a good thing.”
