Elizabeth Warren is expected to launch her presidential campaign in one of New England's poorest and most heavily Latino communities. "We can't afford to tinker around the edges with a tax credit here, a regulation there". Not afraid to go after big banks and big business, she may yet turn into a frontrunner, too. "Warren has left herself open on a couple fronts to pile on. So once he's gone, we can't pretend that none of this ever happened".

Warren later released DNA results that showed extremely minor traces of Native American ancestry, perhaps less than the average American. "I was a Republican because I thought that those were the people who best supported markets", she said.

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.

The plan, according to documents provided by the campaign, would impose a 2% tax on Americans whose net worth exceeds $50 million.

It may be too early for most Democrats to know which candidate they will back, but they do know what they want in a candidate.

"Now when I talk about this, some rich guys scream, 'class warfare!' Well let me tell you something: These same rich guys have been waging class warfare against hardworking people for decades", the senator added. I am in that fight all the way.

The story got fresh legs this week when the Washington Post reported on a 1986 University of Texas state bar registration card on which she wrote her race was "American Indian", leading to another apology from Warren. Nonwhite voters made up more than a quarter of the Democratic primary electorate in 2016.




We need to "clean up Washington", shouted Sen.

Following the formation of a presidential exploratory committee on December 31, Warren had a successful first month on the campaign trail, making well-received trips to Iowa and New Hampshire with her message of taking on a corrupt political and economic system.

She also backed a constitutional amendment to ensure the right to vote, and she advocated for tightening ethics requirements on members of Congress and even Supreme Court justices.

Warren will be the third senator to officially launch her campaign, after Senators Kamala Harris and Cory Booker. Sen.

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. Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) set to announce her bid. New Jersey Senator Cory Booker is in Iowa, while New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is visiting SC.

In 2003, Senator John Kerry chose for his announcement not the reliably blue MA, but the red state of SC, and stressed his military service during a time of war by using a US Navy ship for a backdrop. She is scheduled to be in Iowa on Sunday.
