She announced earlier this week an Iowa team that already includes Emily Parcell, then-Sen. I am in this fight for working families. "This is the fight of my life".
And she's not wasting any time. "And what matters to us is that everybody gets a fighting chance".
A December Des Moines Register/CNN poll of likely 2020 Democratic caucus-goers in Iowa found Warren in fourth place with 8 percent support, trailing three candidates who have not yet entered the race - Biden at 32 percent, Sanders at 19 percent and former US Representative Beto O'Rourke of Texas at 11 percent.
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.
Below are videos of her full speech and the complete question and answer portion of her event. I have a feeling she will say no.
KHALID: Well, I would say if you were to drill down Sen.
"People are hungry for hope - hope there's something out there that's going to turn this around because this is just scary", Deb Schwiesow, who saw Warren in Council Bluffs, said about the excitement behind the visit.
Trying to stick to her message, she said, "What 2020 is going to be about is not about my family". Bernie Sanders in the 2016 primaries, said this time around, she doesn't want to vote for a man. "Not a nibble here and a piece there".
"It's just playing into his hands", Plank said.
On the other hand, Trump also looked bad when he reneged on his offer to donate money to charity if Warren took a DNA test and it proved she had Native American ancestry.
Trump frequently belittles Warren's claims by calling her "Pocahantas", but she faced criticism from fellow Democrats and Native Americans for taking the test. "Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage", he said. Including the DNA test. He formed his exploratory committee last month. Iowa is the first state in the nation to hold its caucuses.
Outside another event, a Trump supporter was arrested for allegedly assaulting another attendee with a selfie stick.
"I think she's gonna get questions about it, I told her". When one man grabbed at his sign, Thom hit him in the head with his selfie stick, leading to a swift arrest by security officers for disorderly conduct.
"My decision was, I'm just going to put it all out there", the senator said, while also making it clear that she does not identify as "a person of color" nor "a citizen of a [native] tribe", according to NBC News.
"We need a trade policy that is not decided by tweet", she said to cheers.
In Iowa, Warren said her childhood in Oklahoma shaped her populist economic views.
His top choice is Sen. But it was high in the minds of many voters who came to see Warren and who told CBS that defeating Mr. Trump next year is Priority Number One.
Iowan Nicki Johnson, sporting a "Nevertheless, She Persisted" t-shirt, said she was undecided, but she too praised Warren for her conspicuous decision to not assail Trump.
"It's not like I have tested this out with some focus groups, or done a bunch of polling", she said in Des Moines and at other stops.
"Warren missed her moment in 2016, and there's reason to be skeptical of her prospective candidacy in 2020", the editorial board wrote.
"You can still be a billionaire and be compassionate", Scheideman said.
The logic behind it, Warren explained, was simple. Different from a primary, in which voters simply mark a ballot, the process of caucusing gathers voters together in nearly 1,700 separate simultaneous meetings across the state to discuss party platform issues.
Warren is smart but she doesn't talk down to her audience like a Harvard academic might.
