LGBT ally Elizabeth Warren launches Presidential bid

Elizabeth Warren exploratory committee annoucement

"Every person in America should be able to work hard, play by the same set of rules, and take care of themselves and the people they love". Elizabeth Warren has taken the next step toward a presidential run by forming an exploratory committee. This represents "a marked departure from 2016, when left-leaning grass-roots groups were hungry for Warren to take on the more establishment Hillary Clinton in the primary as their candidate". "And keep in mind that 2018 was a much better year for Democrats nationwide, so the fact that Liz Warren did worse than Hillary Clinton in MA suggests that perhaps she is a below-par candidate".

Senator Warren, 69, who has represented MA since 2013, was one of Mr Trump's fiercest critics during the 2016 presidential race and they have continued to exchange biting insults during his presidency.

In the video, the 69-year-old former law professor lays out her vision of the future, while setting herself up as a foil to President Trump and members of his administration. Her announcement video highlighted her goals of remedying the economic imbalances faced by people of color, and featured footage of her involvement with the Women's March as well as LGBTQ events.

In mid-December, former Obama housing chief Julian Castro also announced a presidential exploratory committee, which legally allows potential candidates to begin raising money.

Earlier this month, Julian Castro, 44, who served as mayor of San Antonio as well as secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development under Democratic President Barack Obama, said he was forming an exploratory committee and was and would announce his intentions on January 12.

But, Warren said, regular people in American faced more hard challenges in 2018.

To the surprise of no one, Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent who is eyeing another presidential run harnessing the same populist rhetoric. He tweeted, "Pocahontas (the bad version), sometimes referred to as Elizabeth Warren, is getting slammed". Now Cherokee Nation denies her, "DNA test is useless".

The video message out Monday features childhood pictures and grainy home video of the senator as a girl and then a young mom.

In her first campaign blunder before even announcing her exploratory committee, Warren's rollout of the DNA test results was met with mockery and backlash.

We still have more than a year to go before the first Iowa caucus, and the Democratic primary race is sure to be an incredibly crowded one.

The Boston Globe published an editorial that encouraged Warren not to run for president.

Warren's campaign is likely to revolve around the same theme she's woven into speeches and policy proposals in recent years: battling special interests, paying mind to the nexus between racial and economic inequities.

"America's middle class is under attack", she said the video. "We'll cheer the progress we've made toward building a more welcoming society for all, and we'll recommit to protecting the rights of all Americans, so that everyone in this country is treated with dignity and respect-so everyone gets a chance to dance!" No, she names and shames her villains, from big banks who push for their own deregulation, to self-interested and moneyed politicians who cut their own taxes at the expense of the rest of us, to hate-mongers on Fox News and in the White House who peddle racism and misogyny to stir up an angry, bigoted Republican base.
