Warren tests anti corruption theme to cheers in Iowa debut

"We need to make structural change. And it needs to stop". "We need to call this what it is, corruption pure and simple", the MA senator told Democrats in Sioux City on the second of five public stops during her three-day visit.

Former Housing Secretary Julian Castro also has formed an exploratory committee, and former U.S. Representative John Delaney became the first Democrat to formally declare past year and has campaigned extensively in the state. Kamala Harris to South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigeg ― could launch campaigns in the coming months. "Across Iowa and then across America", Warren told a crowd of about 500 in Council Bluffs. After she goes to Council Bluffs on Friday, she will appear in a grand theater in Sioux City on Saturday before heading to a roundtable in Storm Lake and another event in Des Moines.

Her next stop is Sioux City.

While Iowa is expected to soon be overrun with Warren's would-be competitors, this weekend she had the place to herself. "And it is wrong, and that's why I'm in this fight". She spoke about her working-class upbringing in Oklahoma and vowed to tackle corruption and inequality, arguing that "Washington works great for those with money but not for anyone else". Scott Brown in 2012, and legislation she passed that will drastically lower the cost of hearing aids.

McDaniel, who was also Hillary Clinton's primary states regional director, will play a senior role in developing Warren's field program, the sources told CNN.

While taking questions during a stop in Sioux City, Warren was asked why she chose to to take a DNA test that appeared to confirm accusations that she embellished her Native American heritage in past statements. "Tribal citizenship is very different from ancestry", she added. She is not a citizen of any tribe. You know, she's constantly - I would say consciously been distancing herself from this and really just been trying to focus on the economy and how bad things are in the economy and how they can be fixed.

'My decision was to put it all out there, ' Warren said. This week, he tweeted out a fake bumper sticker mocking the senator. Warren. And there are so many others looking into it.

While some already backed Warren, many who showed up at the senator's organizing stops were just starting their examination of what's to be an extensive Democratic roster.

Last year, Warren took some hits for skipping Iowa during the midterm elections even as everyone from Biden to Sens. Bernie Sanders as the Democratic front-runners. And she describes this as being what she thought was a personal story but years later realized it was actually a story about government because she says, you know, back when her mom got this job, minimum wage job, you could support a family of three. "I don't think that does any good", said Punteney, the chair of the Pottawattamie County Democratic Party, who said he is nevertheless looking for a candidate "who's definitely going to stand up for themselves".

"And Iowa is going to have a big part in determining where we go next", the senator said during the question period.
