US Senator Elizabeth Warren Announces Move For 2020 Presidential Run

Elizabeth Warren announces 2020 run for president against Trump

Trump has frequently delighted in derisively calling Warren "Pocahontas", a reference to her 2012 campaign against Republican Scott Brown when he claimed she had misrepresented her family's Cherokee heritage for professional gain.

In October, Warren released a DNA analysis she said supported her assertion that she had Native American lineage that goes back six to 10 generations.

To the extent primary voters are strategic and just want someone who can beat Trump, Warren might not be it.

Warren burst onto the national scene a decade ago during the financial crisis with calls for greater consumer protections, and quickly became one of the party's more prominent liberals.

Warren uses the time-honored technique of labeling conservatives of being racists and homophobes after attacking the government as a "tool for the wealthy".

So What's An "Exploratory Committee"?

The Senator has maintained a 100 percent rating on the Human Rights Campaign's Congressional Scorecard, meaning she has voted in favour of every single LGBT+ rights reform since her election to the Senate in 2013. But it does make a certain amount of sense. While we understand there are plenty of potential candidates, the following public figures have been reported to be close to announcing their bids.

Will you take a moment to chip in?

So What's Next For Warren?

The website announcing Warren's exploratory committee portrays her as a product of the American dream that has slipped out of reach for too many Americans.

"America's middle class is under attack", the Massachusetts Democrat said in a four-minute, 30-second video emailed to supporters Monday. After she delivered a sermonette on the need for stricter financial regulation during a 2010 appearance on The Daily Show, the show's host, Jon Stewart, famously asked her, "Can I kiss you?"

Among those who have already declared their intention to run are Julian Castro, a former housing secretary in Barack Obama's administration, John Delaney, a Maryland congressman, and Richard Ojeda, a former army paratrooper who is now a state senator in West Virginia.
