Warren's trip to Iowa tests themes for a likely 2020 run
07 January, 2019, 06:47 | Author: Ted Wilson
Though Warren announced the formation of a presidential exploratory committee Monday, the weekend events had all the trappings of a full-blown campaign.
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. Her husband declines a beer for himself.
Progressives who wanted to draft Warren to run for president in 2016 kicked off their campaign in the state.
Warren immediately seized on the article as fodder for a fundraising email, suggesting that the piece was just "beard-stroking" sexism and "Republican propaganda".
"We need a trade policy that is not decided by tweet", she said to cheers.
For her part, Warren sought to address this potential vulnerability - and implicit comparisons to Clinton's candidacy - as she introduced herself to Iowans.
But late previous year despite saying she did not want to make a third run for the White House, she also added "I'd like to be president". Warren had sent staff and resources to the state and to the Democratic party here but, facing her own reelection, she didn't campaign on the ground for any candidates. That underscores two challenges for Warren this weekend: She is not coming in as an obvious front-runner, and she might be compared, in voters' minds, to the idealized versions of other campaigns that have yet to take shape. It was also meant to silence the president's favorite nickname for the Harvard Law professor - "Pocahontas". "That's what I'm fighting for and that's why today I'm launching an exploratory committee for president".
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.
"Show us your papers". They're saying: We're Iowa, we're ready. Her first question wasn't about policy, but about a freaky stunt that revealed she does not have a strong claim to Native American ancestry. "Why is the path so rocky?" she said to a crowd of around 500 people in Council Bluffs on Friday evening. But her choice to effectively engage the criticism from the President and others in October with a DNA test irked many Democrats and overshadowed her midterm message.
"I'm really looking forward to the opportunity to be out and listen to people who are working hard and playing by the rules and trying to hold it together every day", Warren said in an interview at the Capitol on Thursday, shortly before being sworn in to a second term. "I am not a citizen of a tribe".
'Tribes - and only tribes - determine tribal citizenship, and I respect that difference'. She's considering a 2020 presidential run with the goal of making life better for the middle class.
Along with her announcement, Warren released a four-minute video that focused on taking on Wall Street and corruption in Washington.
Seemingly unperturbed by the question, Warren said that she was "glad for us to have a chance to talk about it".
Warren's desire to be relatable came full circle during her trip to Iowa, in which she awkwardly "admitted" to purchasing things on Amazon when asked about internet regulation. For the remaining time, she answered questions from audience members. One of her most significant competitors could be Sen.
Rosslyn Scheideman came out to the Des Moines event with her daughter and praised Warren's advocacy for consumers, but she was also high on one billionaire who could be a 2020 candidate: Tom Steyer.
