The walls may be closing in on Democrat hopeful Joe Biden as 2020 Presidential candidates speak out on his alleged sexual harassment exposed by ex-politician Lucy Flores.
Elizabeth Warren jabbed Biden by making it clear she believes Lucy Flores and refused to say Biden should stay in the race.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren: "I read the op-ed last night. I believe Lucy Flores and Joe Biden needs to give an answer."
Question: "Should he not run as a result?"

Presidential candidates Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro said Saturday that they believe the account of a former candidate for Nevada lieutenant governor who published an op-ed Friday accusing former Vice President Joe Biden of “inappropriate” contact.
The two candidates for the 2020 Democratic Party nomination for president told reporters at the Heartland Forum that they believed former Nevada state assemblywoman Lucy Flores, who said this week that Biden leaned in and smelled her hair before kissing the back of her head at a campaign event in 2014.
“I read the op-ed last night,” Warren told reporters. “I believe Lucy Flores, and Joe Biden needs to give an answer.”
Castro pointed to a statement a spokesman for Biden gave The Hill and other news outlets claiming that the former vice president does not remember the incident Flores described. But Castro stated that he personally believed her.
“I believe Lucy Flores,” Castro told reporters. “I believe that the vice president put a statement out today on that. We need to live in a nation where we can hear her truth.”
