Warren hires top Sanders aide ahead of Iowa swing

Warren cracked open a beer while discussing her'kind of an amazing day

Warren cracked open a beer while discussing her'kind of an amazing day

As she started her three-day swing in Sioux City, the first question from the audience asked why she'd let President Trump, who ridicules her as "Pocahontas", dare her into taking a DNA test that indicated only marginal Native American heritage.

In Sioux City, she grounded her pitch in her own family's life story, relating how they nearly fell into poverty when her father had a heart attack in middle age and her mother feared losing their house, which was saved when her mom got a minimum wage job.

Warren is the most prominent Democrat yet to make a move toward a presidential bid and has always been a favorite target of President Donald Trump.

"Warren missed her moment in 2016, and there's reason to be skeptical of her prospective candidacy in 2020", the editorial board wrote. "We've got to go big on this". You know, she's constantly - I would say consciously been distancing herself from this and really just been trying to focus on the economy and how bad things are in the economy and how they can be fixed. Tom Steyer, a liberal billionaire from California, is also considering a run for president and will travel to the caucus and primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada early this year.

She didn't hesitate, however, to allude to potential rivals Tom Steyer and Michael Bloomberg, both billionaires, by arguing for elections free from the influence of billionaires.

"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.

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.

Despite the friendly reception, retired teacher Carla Hawkins was far from ready to commit.

"I'm ready for something good, something better", she said. "I just want to know whoever we nominate is strong". "I hate to say that, but I think that". Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent whose decision to enter the 2016 presidential campaign was partly a reaction to Warren's decision to sit it out, the MA senator seems least at ease when political conversation turns personal.

"We need somebody who is focusing on our generation", Bashore said.

Warren was scheduled to close out her Iowa visit Sunday by meeting privately with Democratic activists at a Des Moines coffee shop and later with a public roundtable discussion with women in a Des Moines suburb. McGinnis was in line to get her picture taken with Warren.

Warren announced on December 31 that she was forming an exploratory committee for the 2020 presidential race.

"I'd like to see how she deals with people one-on-one, that interaction between her and regular folks", said Jan Bauer, the Story County Democratic chairwoman, who planned to attend the private event with Warren Saturday.

"I'm glad you asked that question", Warren responded. Warren's staff logged the names and contact information for those interested in more information. Barack Obama's Iowa political director for the 2008 caucus and as a senior adviser to Hillary Clinton in the state eight years later, has signed on with Warren, along with Janice Rottenberg, according to two sources.
