Elizabeth Warren made a big announcement this morning, one that indicates she intends to run for president in a crowded Democratic field in 2020:
ABC NEWS – Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday took the first major step toward launching a widely anticipated campaign for the presidency, hoping her reputation as a populist fighter can help her navigate a Democratic field that could include nearly two dozen candidates.
“No matter what our differences, most of us want the same thing,” the 69-year-old Massachusetts Democrat said in a video that highlights her family’s history in Oklahoma. “To be able to work hard, play by the same set of rules and take care of the people we love. That’s what I’m fighting for and that’s why today I’m launching an exploratory committee for president.”
Now, as a likely presidential contender, she is making an appeal to the party’s base. Her video notes the economic challenges facing people of color along with images of a women’s march and Warren’s participation at an LGBT event.
In an email to supporters, Warren said she’d more formally announce a campaign plan early in 2019.
Warren is the most prominent Democrat yet to make a move toward a presidential bid and has long been a favorite target of President Donald Trump.
I think to most of us it was pretty clear she was running when she released her DNA test earlier this year to try and prove she was 1/1024th Native American. And we all know how that went. Even the Cherokee Nation came out and blasted her claims.
And then we found out that, because of these claims she was making, Fordham Law Review absurdly recognized Warren as the “first woman of color” at Harvard Law School.
But more than any of that she’s a hardcore socialist who argued, back in 2011, that nobody in this country got rich on their own as an excuse to raise taxes:
There’s no doubt in my mind that Bernie Sanders will run, and now with Big Chief Warren on the verge of throwing her hat into the ring, it should be interesting to see which socialist survives.
