Sen. Elizabeth Warren is assessing her path forward in the 2020 race, a campaign aide tells Axios' Alexi McCammond.

Why it matters: Warren failed to win any states, including her home state of Massachusetts, and only amassed 12 delegates on Super Tuesday.

  • As moderates Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Mike Bloomberg have consolidated behind Joe Biden, Warren has faced calls to drop out from some progressives who believe her campaign is kneecapping Bernie Sanders.

What they're saying: In an email to staffers, Warren campaign manager Roger Lau — who had previously insisted Warren would take her candidacy all the way to the convention — said that though Super Tuesday delegates are still being counted and the race remains "volatile," the team is "obviously disappointed."

  • "All of us have worked for Elizabeth long enough to know that she isn’t a lifetime politician and doesn’t think like one," Lau continued.
  • "She’s going to take time right now to think through the right way to continue this fight."

Sen. Bernie Sanders said on Wednesday afternoon that he spoke to Warren earlier in the day and she relayed to him that she was assessing her campaign.

  • "Elizabeth Warren is a very, very excellent senator. She has run a strong campaign. She will make her own decision in her own time," Sanders said. "I think what's important is that we respect her decision."
  • Sanders also added that he's "disgusted" by the vitriol directed at Warren online, including by some of his supporters.
