It's official: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is running for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. She'll spend Sunday in Iowa, where the nation's leadoff caucuses will be the first test of the Democratic field's mettle. She framed the 1912 walkout by women textile workers as a blueprint for her campaign, one focused on economic inequality. "I am in that fight all the way", Warren said.

The 69-year-old from the U.S. state of MA has already become a main target of Trump, who has dubbed Warren "Pocahontas" for previously identifying herself as a Native American, a controversy that has plagued the run-up to her candidacy.

That challenge is on display this weekend as Democratic presidential contenders - or those considering a run - fan out across the crucial early-voting states.

Warren told the crowd on Saturday, "It won't be enough to just undo the awful acts of this administration".

Trump and conservatives have long called Warren "Pocahontas" for her Native American ancestry claims. "Separating a momma from a baby does not make this country safer", Warren said in an interview with CNN last summer, a message she has returned to during her time on the campaign trail.

Trump's campaign described Warren as a "fraud".

In addition to being a fierce Trump critic, Warren is an outspoken critic of Wall Street who gained national notoriety for her efforts to create the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to regulate large banks.

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

Re "Warren can't beat Trump" by Joan Vennochi (Opinion, Feb. 7): Much as I admire Senator Elizabeth Warren, I agree that she would not be able to defeat Donald Trump in 2020. "I like her fighting spirit".

Warren joins a revolutionary panel of democratic candidates that features multiple women, POC, and queer politicians. "I want to know what people are going to do to fix the issues that matters that we face". In 2012, her run for the U.S. Senate in MA was overshadowed by reporting that she was listed for years as a minority in the Association of American Law Schools directory and as Native American while teaching law at Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania.

"It is a story about power-our power when we fight together".

"When government works only for the wealthy and well-connected, that is corruption - plain and simple".

"I can't go back", Warren told The Washington Post.

Warren set up an exploratory committee on December 31 to consider a run, though there was little doubt she'd follow through with a formal campaign. Her past claims to Native American heritage, including a controversial DNA test to prove she had distant Native American ancestry, landed her in hot water with the Cherokee Nation. Kirsten Gillibrand is visiting SC. Kennedy will be one of the first sitting members of Congress to formally back any of the declared 2020 candidates.

The plan, according to documents provided by the campaign, would impose a 2% tax on Americans whose net worth exceeds $50 million. Sherrod Brown, planned to be in New Hampshire on Saturday.

"It's about dealing with extreme concentrations of wealth", said Stephanie Kelton, a professor at Stony Brook University in NY and former senior economic adviser to the campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent who's considering another run for the Democratic nomination.

"Real democracy requires equal justice under law ..." McConnell's complaint about Warren - "Nevertheless, she persisted" - has become a rallying cry for activists. Bernie Sanders in 2016; Hillary Clinton, then a NY senator, in 2008; and then-Massachusetts Sen.

The Progressive Change Campaign Committee, a group which says it has almost one million members nationally that it can mobilize, quickly endorsed Warren. Warren recalls how her mother, crying, put on her best dress, insisted they would not lose their home, and found a minimum-wage job that ultimately kept them afloat.
