Sen. Elizabeth Warren: "America's middle class is getting hollowed out".

"I thought she did a great job, that she touched on a lot of points and she answered everybody's questions She was honest, she had the facts to back them", Anna Gerjavic of Council Bluffs said.

Though Warren announced the formation of a presidential exploratory committee Monday, Friday's event had all the trappings of a full-throttle presidential campaign.

Warren giddily released the results but conceded last month that she is "not a person of color" in a tacit acknowledgement that prior claims about her alleged Native American heritage were overblown. In the past, he has mocked the Massachusetts Democrat by dubbing her "Pocahontas".

"So I think this is a moment for all of the Democratic nominees as they come into the race to say as a Democratic party we are going to link arms and we're going to say grassroots funding. You'd have to ask her psychiatrist".

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.

Just before speaking, the power went out at McCoy's Bar, Patio and Grill, leaving Warren to speak in the dark.

High school senior Maggie Bashore said she was curious, but looking for someone younger than Warren, who is 69.
