Challenge US Senator Elizabeth Warren is to launch an exploratory committee to assess her chances of the Democratic nomination

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) announced today that she's forming an exploratory committee for a 2020 presidential run.

The 69-year-old progressive announced she was launching an exploratory committee for president, becoming the first major candidate in what is set to be an extraordinarily crowded Democratic primary, united by a singular focus on unseating the Republican Trump.

With her video announcement declaring that "America's middle class is under attack", the 2020 Democratic primary now begins in full force.

"How did we get here?" she asked rhetorically. "Billionaires and big corporations decided they wanted more of the pie, and they enlisted politicians to cut them a fatter slice". "Meanwhile, a September poll indicated that MA voters were more enthusiastic about Patrick making a White House bid than Warren".

In a move seen as an official signal that she is entering the 2020 contest for president, Sen. The fact that Liz Warren did worse than Hillary Clinton in MA suggests that perhaps she's a below-par candidate.

The Massachusetts senator, known as a liberal firebrand in her party, released a video in which she outlines her vision of a path to opportunity for all Americans. While she quickly became a liberal star when she joined the Senate, there is a real argument to be made that a Harvard professor from MA is not what the party needs in the 2020 general election.

Trump disparaged Warren's Native American heritage, which she can trace through DNA back six to ten generations, by calling her "Pocahontas". Mr Trump mockingly refers to her as "Pocahontas" because of her claim to Native American ancestry.

Warren's staff members are also having discussions with operatives in those states and are in the process of searching for campaign office space in the Boston area, the expected location of her presidential campaign headquarters. "She's one of the best of the very famous politicians, policy-wise & most of the candidates who'll come out will be markedly worse than her but they'll have to grapple with what she's laid down".

Is Warren's scorched-earth rhetorical style the right way to run against Trump-Pence, or does it play into their hands?

First elected to the Senate in 2012, Warren has been a reliably liberal voice, clashing not only with conservatives but with fellow Democrats in her opposition to financial deregulation. The Cherokee Nation, however, called the DNA testing "useless". During a debate for her 2018 reelection campaign, Warren tried to defend herself by saying the reason she released the results of her DNA test were to restore trust in government again. But it also risks emphasizing anger at a time when Democrats are divided over whether they instead should seek out a more optimistic and unifying nominee.
