Elizabeth Warren's Iowa debut

Sen. Elizabeth Warren arrived in Iowa on Friday evening and, through four events over a little more than 24 hours, quickly made clear that even as her presidential campaign evolves, she is poised to rise or fall with the same brand of wonky populism that took her from the classroom to Capitol Hill.

Warren added, "What I can do is I can be in this fight for all of our families". Tonight I told Rachel @Maddow: Every Democratic candidate for President in 2020 should link arms & pledge to run grassroots campaigns funded by the people. During a debate for her 2018 reelection campaign, Warren tried to defend herself by saying the reason she released the results of her DNA test were to restore trust in government again.

Warren's visit is an effort to gain an early advantage in the state.

Despite the website's insistence that Warren's claims to Native American ancestry are not problematic, the senator spent her first week on the campaign trail seemingly making amends to tribal nations. Earlier in the week, days after Warren announced her exploratory committee, Mr. Trump tweeted a meme hitting her over the heritage question.

Speaking to a crowd of cheering supporters in Council Bluffs, Warren continued underscoring her message against corruption and targeting her message to middle class voters. I'm not a citizen of a tribe.

Famed for her stern rhetoric about big banks and corporations, Warren simply said "Wells Fargo" at one point before the crowd of 700 in Des Moines drowned her out with boos.

Before the midterm elections, Warren sought to put the issue to rest by having a DNA test performed on her.

Her LGBTQ record. Warren came to office pledging to be strong advocate for LGBTQ rights, staking out a stand for marriage equality before President Obama did. However, indigenous tribes quickly slammed the results as a stunt and said it is not acceptable to demonstrate "tribal affiliation".

"It bothers me that there is this test of likability just because she is a woman", Nelson said.

Nevertheless, Warren persisted in not discussing Trump by name unless specifically asked about him, although she got in a dig when asked about crop prices by an Iowa farmer.

Her resumé. Warren began her career as an academic, eventually working her way up to become a professor of law at Harvard. "Why did you undergo the DNA testing and give Donald Trump more fodder to be a bully?"

Warren, 69, is the first of the better-known national Democratic presidential prospects to announce an exploratory committee and set course for Iowa, marking the unofficial start in the campaign for the caucuses, scheduled for February 2020.

But she says Washington continues to work great for those with money, but not for anyone else. We're looking ahead to 2020.

Bounding onto stage in a packed building in Des Moines's trendy East Village, Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA waved to the crowd before speaking in a strained voice.

"No one's raised it", she said.

"I think Iowa caucusgoers will be going for a candidate who is more progressive than they've ever nominated", he said. Other Democratic presidential prospects are expected to announce their plans in the coming weeks, and have been in touch for weeks with party leaders, activists and potential staff in Iowa. For the remaining time, she answered questions from audience members.

Asked how she planned to prevent a repeat of the "undemocratic behavior between the DNC and Hillary's campaign in 2016 against Sen". Many Democrats seized on the same report, determined to lay down a marker to ensure that Warren and the other women likely to run - so many of them politically and personally distinct from Clinton in so many ways - be spared a very similar treatment.
