Warren Visits Iowa, Says 'I Am Not a Person of Color'

Sen. Elizabeth Warren D-Mass addresses an overflow crowd outside an organizing event at McCoy’s Bar Patio and Grill in Council Bluffs Iowa Friday Jan. 4 2019

Two Iowa voters tell me they believe Senator Warren is trying to bring people together from both sides of the political aisle. Cupp then pointed to Warren's "DNA test debacle". Including the DNA test.

"Why has America's middle class been hollowed out? Why is the path so rocky?" she said to a crowd of around 500 people in Council Bluffs on Friday evening.

"I think she can", Guthrie said.

In various speeches and question-and-answer sessions, Warren described her early campaign as a fight. I have a feeling she will say no.

And she's not wasting any time. "What pulled me in is what is happening to working families across this country". "I didn't pick this fight because it poll-tested".

At that point, Warren pivoted to her campaign's latest tactic for dispelling concerns over her wrongful appropriation of Native American culture and ancestry, reminding her audience that Donald Trump frequently makes "racially charged" comments.

The move backfired on Warren, who was criticized for badly miscalculating.

All of Warren's events in Iowa were well attended, and many Iowans were eager to ask her questions.

Eliason also explained to the Free Beacon what he meant when he called Warren "very shrill" in an interview with U.S. News and World Report last week.

A Minnesota man was arrested Saturday for allegedly attempting to disrupt a campaign event in Storm Lake for 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren.

The questioner pressed Warren, though, on how deeply the "helpful" and "transparent" DNA test cut into her campaign, noting to Warren that President Donald Trump used Warren's announcement, last week, of forming her exploratory committee, to distract from issues dogging the White House, including immigration and an ongoing government shutdown.

Warren's trip - her first to Iowa since 2014 - caps a week in which she took significant steps to formalise her 2020 efforts by launching a presidential exploratory committee and hiring a team of veteran Iowa staffers.

"I'm glad you asked that question", Warren said.

'I am not a citizen of a tribe, ' Warren told voters in Sioux City, Iowa on Saturday. Tribes, and only tribes, determine tribal citizenship. "And I respect that difference".

"I can't stop Donald Trump from what he's going to do".

In Des Moines, when an audience member shouted "Do you like to dance?" "Let me say something about this fight".

"When there's someone who's been as reckless as [Trump] has been.so clearly on display, folks really want to make sure we have the best nominee who's going to be able to win", said Price.

Warren, a 69-year-old former Harvard Law School professor, became the highest-profile Democrat to launch a presidential exploratory committee when she filed papers December 31 with the Federal Election Commission. "Anybody can look at it", she said. She resisted a push from some to run in 2016 when Hillary Clinton was the clear front-runner for the Democratic nomination. And I don't think she would let him do that.

Others were drawn to her economic pitch, particularly her references to a time when wages matched opportunities. "Today, a minimum-wage job in America will not keep a mama and a baby out of poverty". During a campaign stop in Iowa, she defended her decision to undergo a DNA test. He's most concerned about the cost of his prescription medication, which he has to pay almost $300 for out of pocket.

But even some of those most inclined towards Warren in the primary wondered about general election electability. "She's being portrayed in the right wing media as this wild-eyed liberal from the East Coast", said Bill Shackelford, a retiree from Des Moines. "And one of my three brothers is a Democrat. And one of my three brothers is a Democrat", she said. "We gotta stay focused on what matters to us. That's what I try to talk about every chance I get".
