Sen. Elizabeth Warren Officially Kicks Off Bid for White House

Posted February 10, 2019

"We'll see how she does, I wish her well". "It is a story about power - our power - when we fight together". Since then, the senator has traveled to the early primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire and SC, and last month visited Puerto Rico, using the trip to slam President Donald Trump's handling of Hurricane Maria recovery efforts as well as his insistence on building a wall along the U.S. southern border. Elizabeth Warren of MA on Saturday officially kicked off her presidential campaign, telling voters that she plans to bring "big structural change" that curbs the power of the wealthy and levels the playing field for working-class Americans. After their divorce in 1978, she married Bruce Mann, a Harvard University law professor, in 1980. "People who will say it's "extreme" or "radical" to demand an America where every family has some economic security and every kid has a real opportunity to succeed".

Kennedy's decision to throw his support to his home state senator - and not his good friend, former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, who is considering a bid of his own - is a clear signal to fellow Democrats that she remains a serious primary contender despite a politically trying week.

Warren's rollout rally was a potent motivator for longtime supporters such as Mo Malekafzaly and Carlos Garcia, two longtime backers who attended her rally from Shrewsbury, Massachusetts.

Speaking from Washington, Al Jazeera's correspondent Heidi Zhou-Castro said that as popular as Warren's wealth reform proposals may be with the liberal base, "she does have quite a liability with her claims of Native American ancestry".

Others cited Warren's explanation that a Native American background was part of her family lore.

One thing she didn't mention, though, was her claims of Native American ancestry, which first came to the fore during her 2012 victory over then-Republican Sen. "The American people will reject her dishonest campaign and socialist ideas like the Green New Deal, that will raise taxes, kill jobs and crush America's middle-class".

Warren did not refer to her Native American claims, but she repeatedly mentioned race and the added difficulties confronting minorities. I hope she does well. "Only under President Trump's leadership will America continue to grow safer, secure and more prosperous", Parscale stated.

While Warren represents MA, she was born and raised in Oklahoma, attended college in New Jersey, and taught at law schools in Texas and Pennsylvania before teaching at Harvard.

But he also cautioned that "it's still very, very early" to speculate on "how it harms her, or doesn't harm her".

She got some of her biggest applause when she talked about her plan to change politics, repeating a pledge not to take money from special interests. Kamala Harris of California and Sanders. Bernie Sanders and Amy Klobuchar, expected to jump in soon. A year before any ballots are cast in a Democratic primary, many of those candidates are spending this weekend talking to voters in the early-nominating states of Iowa, New Hampshire and SC.
