Democrat Warren takes economic message to Iowa in kickoff to 2020 race

07 Janvier 2019

She wants "to strengthen our unions, our workers and our consumers" while breaking the hold of an "army of lobbyists" occupying the capital, as she describes it, under the banners of "big corporations".

Local Democrats said they were anxious to start focusing on picking a challenger for Trump, although most said it was way too early for them to commit to a candidate. "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. Some voters want a candidate who'll bring a more aspirational message. "I wish I could just open the door and have lots of folks in, but this is a way to do it", she said, adding that her beer of choice is Michelob Ultra, what she called "the club soda of beers". "We need to make structural change".

For her part, Warren sought to address this potential vulnerability - and implicit comparisons to Clinton's candidacy - as she introduced herself to Iowans.

Trying to stick to her message, she said, "What 2020 is going to be about is not about my family". Health care. Social Security.

The issue was indeed a victor for Democrats running during the 2018 midterm elections. Warren laughed and continued.

Warren's itinerary took her through western Iowa, starting in Council Bluffs and Sioux City, two midsize cities on the Missouri River that border Nebraska, before a jaunt to Storm Lake, a meatpacking town with a significant immigrant population. "You would have to ask her psychiatrist".

"I've just got to get today done", he said, as he prepared for Warren's swearing-in to another Senate term.

A better-than-expected finish in Iowa could position Warren well in New Hampshire, where she would be expected to perform well as a neighbor to the first-in-the-nation primary state. "I don't know that you need to go as far to the middle as some people in the past's not the '90s anymore". That's why I fight my heart out so that everyone gets a real chance in life, a chance to build something solid, a chance to create their piece of the American dream. "He takes a problem that has just been growing, and growing and growing, and he just sets it off - and makes it worse than it ever was". She's arguing that the system is stacked against working and middle-class people, in favor of the wealthy, and that the time has come to right the balance.

Leggio says she has "no doubt" the MA senator would do a "good job" as president, but given Hillary Clinton's loss in 2016, she's not sure whether the country will take a chance on another woman in 2020.

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

But even some of those most inclined towards Warren in the primary wondered about general election electability. The woman asked Warren during a question and answer sessions at the Orpheum Theater in Sioux City.

"This is going to be the fish or cut bait year for the Democrats and it's going to be, 'How do we think government should work and who do we think government should work for?' Warren said Wednesday".

KHALID: Including from reporters, which is rather notable because I would say she is one senator who's been rather notorious for her aversion to talking to the press as a senator.
