Walking onto a stage in Lawrence to the tunes of Dolly Parton's "Nine to Five", the MA senator made her announcement Saturday morning.

I think Warren would make a great president - she is a real fighter for the working people of our nation.

The Boston Globe, in an editorial, ripped into her ahead of her announcement on Saturday, saying, in part: "Voters ready to forgive and move on might feel differently if the slow drip continues, or if her explanations don't hold up". Joe Kennedy III, D-Newtown; and Lori Trahan, D-Westford; U.S. Sen.

Warren is a staunch consumer advocate who played a key role in the establishment of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau during the Obama administration.

The Massachusetts Democrat, a leader of the party's progressive wing, made her announcement from a historic site in Lawrence, northwest of Boston, that launched the us organized labor movement. "Nevertheless, they persisted", she said about the strike, using one of her iconic campaign phrases to applause.

Warren is one of four women so far seeking the Democratic nomination, an unprecedented number of female candidates vying to lead a country that has never had a woman chief executive. "Today, millions and millions and millions of American families are also struggling to survive in a system that's been rigged-rigged by the wealthy and the well-connected", Warren told the crowd of supporters. "I want to know what people are going to do to fix the issues that matters that we face".

The plan, according to documents provided by the campaign, would impose a 2% tax on Americans whose net worth exceeds $50 million.

Warren's nascent campaign has been plagued with controversy over a DNA test she took in the fall to show that she has some Native American heritage.

Warren joins a revolutionary panel of democratic candidates that features multiple women, POC, and queer politicians. Cory Booker (D-N.Y.) announced his candidacy this week.

Immediately following her Lawrence announcement, the senator embarked on a seven-state organizing tour to drum up support for her campaign in New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina, Georgia, Nevada and California - must-win early primary states. "This go-around, Warren needs to deal with the issue now, rather than in October 2020". She will then travel to a campaign event in nearby Dover, New Hampshire.

Unable to overcome Republican opposition to become the Director of the CFPB, Warren instead challenged and defeated Republican incumbent Senator Scott Brown of MA in 2012.

"It's about dealing with extreme concentrations of wealth", said Stephanie Kelton, a professor at Stony Brook University in NY and former senior economic adviser to the campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent who's considering another run for the Democratic nomination.

Hillary Clinton did an "I'm in" video on January 20, 2007.

"Still, much of the political damage is already done, and Warren's never going to silence critics like President Trump, who gleefully taunts her in racist language", The Globe went on.
