(CNN) – Should Hillary Clinton be concerned about a possible Elizabeth Warren candidacy in 2016?
Rep. Michele Bachmann believes so.
The Minnesota Republican, who ran for president in 2012, was responding to a question posed Tuesday by CNN’s Van Jones on “Crossfire” on whether Warren might be somebody who could pull away Republican votes in a presidential election.
“I don’t see her as necessarily taking Republican votes,” Bachmann said. “But I think she will be an extremely attractive candidate for Democratic voters in 2016… If I was Mrs. Clinton, I would be extremely concerned with what I see.”
On Tuesday, Ready for Warren, a super PAC formed to rally support for a Warren candidacy in 2016, launched its website as it continues in its efforts to draft the Massachusetts senator to a White House bid.
Warren has repeatedly denied any interest in running for president, insisting she plans to serve out the rest of her term in the Senate, which expires in 2018.
If Warren does run however, Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel, a longtime supporter of Hillary Clinton, offered up his support to his friend.
“If she had Charlie Rangel in her corner and she was concerned about Sen. Warren, I would tell her darling, they haven’t got anyone to run against either one of you two,” Rangel said. “And that should give her small comfort.”
