Warren Announces She Is Running for President in 2020

Warren released results from the DNA test in October, which showed "strong evidence" of Native American ancestry, partially in response to criticism from Republicans, including US President Donald Trump who nicknamed her "Pocahontas". "And what I've found is terrifying: these aren't cracks families are falling into, they're traps". Elizabeth Warren risked political backlash here by opting to avoid a trip to Iowa during the critical midterm elections - the only major potential 2020 candidate to do so.

That's after the 2020 aspirant suffered setbacks past year, when she was widely criticized for the clumsy October release of the results of a DNA test in an attempt to address her previous Native American ancestry claims.

Warren's visit is an effort to gain an early advantage in the state. Cupp then pointed to Warren's "DNA test debacle".

Warren, who left Friday for Iowa, visited Des Moines, Council Bluffs, Storm Lake, and Sioux City. "I am not a citizen of a tribe".

"I hope to see somebody fighting for middle class, and I've seen her fight for middle class, so I believe she can do it", one woman in line said.

Housing secretary under Mr Obama, Julian Castro has also already formed an exploratory committee in preparation for a potential 2020 run and is expected to confirm next week whether he will proceed.

In the state that holds the first presidential nominating contest in 13 months, Warren introduced herself to Iowa crowds with tales of her working-class upbringing in Oklahoma and emphasized her signature theme of income inequality. "Tribes - and only tribes - determine tribal citizenship, and I respect that difference".

"I think that campaigns should not be for sale", she said.

"I don't think most people know her personal story", said John Norris, who was the Iowa state director for John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign and an unsuccessful candidate for governor in the state previous year. Warren speak. Ultimately, Stroud couldn't get into the event but Warren came out and spoke to those who were turned away.

Democrats face lingering tensions between their most liberal voices such as Warren and the more pragmatic wing, which includes former Vice President Joe Biden and several former governors and mayors who are considering running. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) announced on Thursday that she is shutting down her joint fundraising PAC. It serves as a first glimpse of what she may look like as a 2020 candidate. When the voter discussed his concern that the controversy about Warren's ancestry could make her vulnerable to attacks by President Donald Trump, she responded that "I can't stop Donald Trump from what he's going to do".

The trip was the MA senator's first public appearance since announcing her consideration of entering the 2020 race, save for speaking to the media outside her home following the announcement. "The good news is nevertheless I persist", she said to laughter and applause.

In an apparent attempt to set the record straight, Warren acknowledged that she was not a minority.

KHALID: No. I mean, there's going to be some two dozen candidates who are Democrats likely to jump in.

Arguing that Warren doesn't have what it takes to win in 2020, Cupp suggested on Saturday that Democrats need a better candidate.

Along with her announcement, Warren released a four-minute video that focused on taking on Wall Street and corruption in Washington. "You would have to ask her psychiatrist". "I don't have the power to do that", she added.

But even some of those most inclined towards Warren in the primary wondered about general election electability.
