Senator Elizabeth Warren to formally launch 2020 presidential campaign

Senator Elizabeth Warren to formally launch 2020 presidential campaign

"And I challenge every other candidate who asks for your vote in this primary to say exactly the same thing". "It is a story about power - our power - when we fight together". She laid out the vision for her presidency in the video as one in which democracy and our economy "work for all of us". Elizabeth Warren of MA on Saturday officially kicked off her presidential campaign, telling voters that she plans to bring "big structural change" that curbs the power of the wealthy and levels the playing field for working-class Americans.

Warren, a former law professor at Harvard University specializing in bankruptcy and commercial law, was a key architect of Barack Obama-era regulations to protect consumers from predatory lenders.

"I believe in an America of opportunity".

Democratic senator Elizabeth Warren has made her bid for the USA presidency official, during a 44-minute speech in sub-zero temperatures.

The Trump campaign released a statement about Warren's candidacy on Saturday, calling her a "fraud". Warren took heat for not only the distant nature of her relative-by her own admission, she could be as little as 1/1,024th Native American-but also for delving into the world of race science and seemingly playing into Trump's hands. "I want a candidate who will win". It became an unofficial Warren motto after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), in a 2017 incident, complained that she had been warned against continuing to speak on the Senate floor in violation of Senate rules, but "nevertheless, she persisted".

Warren frequently invokes her background of growing up in Oklahoma and recounts the emotional story of how her mother saved the family.

One case of measles confirmed in Bell County
One case of measles has been confirmed in Denton County raising the statewide total to seven, according to health officials. People who experience these mild vaccine-associated rashes can not transmit the vaccine virus to other people.

"I'm not particularly paying attention to the noise and the distractions of any candidate, whether it's someone I support or not", she said.

Those claims led her to be criticised by the current president, Donald Trump, who has referred to her as "Pocahontas".

At the MA event, Warren added some biographical elements, describing herself, as a young mother entering law school, having to quickly toilet-train her toddler so she could leave the child at a day-care center while she attended classes. She should have put all this to rest years ago when it first came up in her 2012 Senate campaign against Scott Brown. She will travel to Iowa on Sunday and make visits to South Carolina, Georgia, Nevada, and California in the coming weeks.

She got some of her biggest applause when she talked about her plan to change politics, repeating a pledge not to take money from special interests. New Jersey Senator Cory Booker is in Iowa, while New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is visiting SC. She also discussed Medicare for All, dropping lots of specific policy ideas into her speech.

However, when all is said and done, almost two dozen Democrats are expected to enter the fray, with others like Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden, Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley, California Congressman Eric Swalwell and former Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke having signaled they're considering a run. Kirsten Gillibrand is visiting SC.
