  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren visits Council Bluffs

"I think that's how most Democrats feel, have another election and see what we can get, see if we can fix some problems", she said. "It's just way early".

But less than a week into the new year, Warren already flipped that on its head, becoming the first major candidate to land on the ground in the first-in-the-nation presidential caucus state, lapping up media attention, locking down key staff and organizers, and capitalizing on pent-up 2020 Democratic excitement. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) speaks to guests during an organizing event at the Orpheum Theater on January 5, 2019 in Sioux City, Iowa. The trip is her first to Iowa since 2014, when she campaigned for former Rep. Bruce Braley in Iowa's Senate race. "Warren's visit, I think people are genuinely excited to see her", said Penny Rosfjord, a state central committee member and Iowa Democratic Party 4th congressional district chair.

"Washington works great for those with money but not for anyone else. Those are the issues that I'm gonna talk about".

Despite the website's insistence that Warren's claims to Native American ancestry are not problematic, the senator spent her first week on the campaign trail seemingly making amends to tribal nations. Warren released results from the DNA test in October, which showed "strong evidence" of Native American ancestry. Warren said, when asked by reporters about the tweet.

Rospars is one of the most prominent digital strategists in the Democratic Party and is poised to be a significant asset to Warren heading into a primary season that is expected to be heavily defined online.

Warren's weekend itinerary includes a mix of small and large events.

Despite the friendly receptions Warren received, retired teacher Carla Hawkins of Council Bluffs was far from ready to commit.

Trump, who joined a chorus of Republicans in attacking Warren for years over her claim of being Native, has repeatedly used the racist nickname "Pocahontas" to mock Warren.

Senator Elizabeth Warren spoke to a crowd of over 600 people in Des Moines Saturday night, as part of her statewide visit to Iowa kicking off her 2020 presidential campaign. "She comes across as real".

"I'm ready for something good, something better", she said. The move was meant to rebut Trump's taunts of Warren as "Pocahontas". I don't think you have to stoop to his level.

Politico ran a piece comparing Warren's likability issues to those of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders' Iowa caucus director in 2016. One of the first top-tier contenders to enter what figures to be one of the most crowded fields for Democrats in some time, Warren is aiming to lay down her marker as its resident economic populist and pitch herself as the ultimate fighter for the middle class.

Just five days ago Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren put her hat in the ring to run for President.

For someone known for her ability to rouse crowds with her takedowns of Wall Street and Trump, Warren ignited her audience in Iowa by promising, in her trademark style, to "persist".

"I think Iowa caucusgoers will be going for a candidate who is more progressive than they've ever nominated", he said.

Warren's campaign is likely to revolve around the same theme she's woven into speeches and policy proposals in recent years: battling special interests, paying mind to the nexus between racial and economic inequities.

"I don't know if it's important to get into arguments with the president".

Though Warren announced the formation of a presidential exploratory committee Monday, Friday's event had all the trappings of a full-throttle presidential campaign.
