Elizabeth Warren Announces Her 2020 Presidential Candidacy

Elizabeth Warren Announces Her 2020 Presidential Candidacy

Ms Warren intends to spend Sunday in Iowa, where the lead-off caucuses will be the first test of candidates' viability.

Despite their sparring history Ms Warren avoided taking direct jabs at President Trump - instead weaving specific policy prescriptions, such as the elimination of Washington "lobbying as we know it", into her remarks.

The Massachusetts Democrat joins a crowded field in her party's primary.

The official was not authorized to publicly discuss details about the announcement before the event and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Her first husband, Jim Warren - to whom she was married during the period she described, from 1968 to 1978, and with whom she has two children - worked as NASA mathematician.

Her profile started to rise in the late 2000s for her commanding attitudes in favour of more rigorous regulations in response to the 2007-2008 financial crisis.

Although dominating headlines with criticism of President Donald Trump, whose administration she labeled Saturday the "most corrupt in living memory", the senior senator has some political baggage of her own. Other Democrats are also speaking out on inequality, but Warren is hitting particularly hard on the notion of creating new operating rules for the capitalist system. A recent CNN poll found that fewer Democrats said they'd be very likely to support Warren if she runs than said the same of former Vice President Joe Biden or Sens. Bernard Sanders of Vermont. "I am in that fight all the way", she said.

But compare that with the last Massachusetts Democrat to announce a presidential run against a sitting Republican president. Cory Booker and more, while U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has also announced an exploratory committee.

In New Hampshire Friday night, Senator Sherrod Brown noted that he has consistently won all corners of that ultimate swing state, Ohio. Warren, 69, has made worker rights, fair wages and access to health care central to her campaign.

"Elizabeth Warren has already been exposed as a fraud by the Native Americans she impersonated and disrespected to advance her professional career, and the people of MA she deceived to get elected", campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement.

The campaign launch will test whether the controversy is simply a Washington obsession or a substantive threat to her candidacy.

She used the backdrop to highlight what she sees as the plight of an American working class that has been left behind by rapacious big business and indifferent government. And as a senator from Vermont who won the New Hampshire primary, he would likely go into the Granite State as an early favorite if he made a decision to run again.

She notched a second viral moment in 2017 after Republican majority leader Mitch McConnell struggled to cut off a floor speech in which Warren was criticizing attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions. "Only under President Trump's leadership will America continue to grow safer, secure and more prosperous".
