Elizabeth Warren formally launches 2020 White House bid

Elizabeth Warren formally launches 2020 White House bid

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is officially a contender for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

John Cluverius, a political science professor at the University of Massachusetts, says Lawrence, Massachusetts, provides an ideal backdrop for the Democrat's announcement Saturday.

Despite such criticism, several MA lawmakers joined Warren for her Lawrence 2020 campaign launch, including U.S. Reps.

The Massachusetts senator revealed on New Years Eve that she was forming an exploratory committee to test the waters for her likely presidential run. "He is just the latest and most extreme symptom of what has gone wrong in America-a product of a rigged system that props up the rich and powerful and kicks dirt on everyone else".

"When I talk about this, some rich guys scream 'class warfare!' Well, let me tell you something, these same rich guys have been waging class warfare against hard-working people for decades - I say it's time to fight back." she said.

"This is the fight of our lives, the fight to build an America where dreams are possible and an America that works for everyone", she continued.

But on the other hand, there are clubs like "Phoenix" or "San Antonio", which only once in the "regular" played overtime. Bookmaker offices, as a rule, estimate the probability of a draw with coefficients from 10.00 to 15.00.

Rawding added that she's thrilled Warren chose Lawrence to launch her 2020 Democratic presidential run, particularly in wake of the deadly September gas explosions that impacted the city and surrounding communities.

In the days leading up to Saturday's announcement, Warren has been weighed down by new questions over her past claims to Native American heritage. One of Donald Trump's favorite targets for verbal abuse, she's sure to draw quite a bit of attention in an increasingly crowded Democrat field.

She was the keynote speaker at the 2016 Democratic National Convention and became Vice Chair of the Senate Democratic Caucus the next year. The backing could prove valuable for Warren, given his status as a rising young Democratic star and his friendship with one of her potential 2020 rivals, former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas.

"I am in that fight all the way", she told supporters.

The report, which marked the first instance yet of Warren making the assertion in her own handwriting, prompted new apologies from the senator. To announce the results of the DNA test, Warren used a campaign-style video that tried to directly address questions about her background. On that form, she listed herself as an "American Indian" in her handwriting - and even after she apologized, she's faced strong criticism for it. But I want to be clear. In 2012, her run for the U.S. Senate in MA was overshadowed by reporting that she was listed for years as a minority in the Association of American Law Schools directory and as Native American while teaching law at Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania. She meant to spend Sunday in Iowa, where the leadoff caucuses will be the first test of candidates' viability.

Three of her fellow senators also are running - Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Kamala Harris of California and Cory Booker of New Jersey - with others actively considering it. Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar is set to announce her plans on Sunday.
