U.S. senator Elizabeth Warren takes step toward presidential run

She’s running

At the time, Mrs Warren told MSNBC: "This was supposed to be an event to honour heroes, people who put it all on the line for our country, who, due to their incredible work, saved the lives of countless Americans and our allies".

The 69-year-old, who has represented MA in the Senate since 2013, is a progressive Democrat.

In a video announcing the formation of the committee, Warren focused on her own life in America, and how her mother and father struggled and worked hard to give her opporunities that were unavailable to them.

PAMELA BROWN: Let's talk about the CNN poll from earlier this month showing that she's [Warren] fairly low on the list of front runners in Democrats' choice for their nominee.

"She was doing populist economics before everybody thought it was cool".

In 2016, about one-quarter of all Democratic primary voters were black, and their strong preference for Clinton was a big reason she secured the nomination. The Massachusetts Democrat said Monday she's launching an exploratory committee for the 2020 campaign. "This dark path doesn't have to be our future".

We still have more than a year to go before the first Iowa caucus, and the Democratic primary race is sure to be an incredibly crowded one.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have tied the knot!
Cyrus posted three black-and-white photos of her and Hemsworth on the singer's Instagram and Twitter accounts on Wednesday. Among the guests at the wedding were the couple's siblings Noah and Brandi Cyrus and Chris and Luke Hemsworth .

Warren missed her moment in 2016, and there's reason to be skeptical of her prospective candidacy in 2020. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) as well as former Vice President Joe Biden. "Democracy is running headlong into the ideologies of nationalism, authoritarianism and corruption".

And Warren also faces a biographical challenge.

Mr Trump's use of the name "Pocahontas", a 17th-century Native American woman associated with the British colony in Jamestown, Virginia, was aimed at drawing attention to a controversy over her heritage raised during Senator Warren's 2012 senate race.

In the video, Warren states, "I've spent my career getting to the bottom of why America's promise works for some families, but others, who work just as hard, slip through the cracks into disaster".

Warren's decision to release her DNA test was the "dumbest thing in years", said John Weaver, a Republican strategist and Trump critic who's an adviser to outgoing Ohio Governor John Kasich.

Some three dozen Democrat senators, governors, mayors and business leaders - most of whom have never run for the White House - are also considering throwing their hats in the ring, according to the Times. A law professor turned consumer advocate, she was instrumental in the establishment of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which is reviled by conservatives.

With former Gov. Deval Patrick's withdrawal from consideration, Warren is the only potential candidate from MA. She extended her influence beyond the academy by writing about economics and consumer finance for a popular audience. "These aren't cracks that families are falling into, they're traps".
