Elizabeth Warren Compares Scrutiny Of Her 'Native American Ancestry' To 'Birtherism'

Democrat Elizabeth Warren speaks to a crowd at Curate in Des Moines

Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kamala Harris of California, have already been to Iowa, the hires make clear that Warren intends to compete in the state.

Warren has been an emerging national figure for more than a decade as an advocate for consumer protection, now a senator and a regular target of President Donald Trump.

And while some people think Warren missed her moment when she let down the supporters who urged her to join the 2016 field, she has spent her time in the Senate accumulating more credibility as a defender of ordinary citizens against Wall Street predators.

"Americans are looking for leaders who have a positive vision of the future and who are willing to tell the truth on issues like climate change, impeachment and justice", Cavalier said. And this weekend, she took that message across Iowa with pit stops in a couple of pretty Republican counties.

Council Bluffs was one of four stops during her first visit to the state.

Warren had a captive audience where she tested campaign themes of taking on major corporations, challenging government corruption and exploring economic inequity while weaving a personal narrative that focused on her family's financial struggles when growing up in Oklahoma. A question was asked by a woman in the crowd to Elizabeth Warren.

"I think that campaigns should not be for sale", she said.

The issue was indeed a victor for Democrats running during the 2018 midterm elections. Warren's speech lasted just under 20 minutes. On Saturday night, she won hearty applause when she called health care "a basic human right".

Warren traveled to Des Moines, Council Bluffs, Storm Lake and Sioux City.

Asked how she planned to prevent a repeat of the "undemocratic behavior between the DNC and Hillary's campaign in 2016 against Sen".

Having recently named a team of seasoned Iowa campaign hands, Warren took the stage in the bowling alley bar to a typical campaign soundtrack of pop and classic hits.

Here is what you need to know about Warren's trip. "I was pulled into this because I have watched how America's middle class has been hollowed out".

"Working families today face a lot tougher path than I did".

"I want somebody to get Trump out of there", she said.

Like her colleague and ideological ally Sen. The trip was the MA senator's first public appearance since announcing her consideration of entering the 2020 race, save for speaking to the media outside her home following the announcement. In the huge field of potential presidential Democratic candidates, there's a degree of nuance on these issues.

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 did not find it as humorous as the 46,000 people who retweeted it did. In fact, the Cherokee Nation, of which Warren claims to be a blood member, rebuked the MA senator for even daring to claim Cherokee ancestry without going through the proper channels or providing anything in the way of proof she's a descendant of anyone of Native ancestry.

"Today, a minimum wage job in America, full time, will not keep a mama and a baby out of poverty", she said, arguing the fight for the middle class has been her life's work as a teacher, professor and US senator.
