Elizabeth Warren, US Democratic senator, announces 2020 presidential bid

Bread & Roses Elizabeth Warren’s presidential announcement honors a great event in labor history

During an event in Lawrence, Massachusetts, Senator Elizabeth Warren announced that she is running for President of the United States in 2020. "Our fight is for big, structural change".

The Massachusetts Democrat joins a crowded field in her party's primary.

Weaving specific policy prescriptions into her remarks, from Medicare for All to the elimination of Washington "lobbying as we know it", Warren avoided taking direct jabs at US President Donald Trump.

She aimed for a broader institutional shift, urging supporters to choose "a government that makes different choices, choices that reflect our values".

Standing against the backdrop of Lawrence's Everett Mills - the site of the "Bread and Roses" labor strike - the Massachusetts Democrat laid out her vision for an America that prioritizes working and middle-class people over the wealthy and well-connected.

The 69-year-old will then head to New Hampshire, home to the nation's first primary, where Warren could have an advantage as a neighboring-state resident with high name recognition.

Ms Warren intends to spend Sunday in Iowa, where the lead-off caucuses will be the first test of candidates' viability.

Washington has repeatedly demanded that Maduro should resign from his post. In response, the country's Air Force called him a traitor.

Following the formation of a presidential exploratory committee on December 31, Warren had a successful first month on the campaign trail, making well-received trips to Iowa and New Hampshire with her message of taking on a corrupt political and economic system.

Kennedy III, D-Mass., will introduce Sen.

Warren, a former law professor at Harvard University specializing in bankruptcy and commercial law, was a key architect of Barack Obama-era regulations to protect consumers from predatory lenders.

In addition to being a fierce Trump critic, Warren is an outspoken critic of Wall Street who gained national notoriety for her efforts to create the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to regulate large banks. Kamala Harris and U.S. Sen. The decision to run marks a significant departure for Warren, who less than two years ago told her constituents in MA that she doesn't want to become president.

Warren has been a frontrunner among democrats in the presidential running for months now. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker is in Iowa while New York Sen. Another possible presidential rival, Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, planned to be in New Hampshire on Saturday.

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. She's apologised twice over the past two weeks for claiming Native American identity on multiple occasions early in her career.

During her remarks, Warren repeatedly lambasted the fundamental injustice of a political system that rewards those with the deepest pockets at the expense of the most vulnerable. The Washington Post published a document that shows, for the first time, Warren's handwritten assertion that she was an "American Indian" on a 1986 registration card she filled out for the Texas bar. Many have expected the senator to announce her bid as other contenders come forward, though she has been coy about it.
