Iowa Democrats Weigh Electability As Candidates Enter The 2020 Race

Sen. Warren reveals beer of choice after Instagram video goes viral

MARTIN: Well, one of the other things that she's known for is her willingness to take on President Trump.

Vice President Mike Pence administers a ceremonial Senate oath during a mock swearing-in ceremony to Sen. But the toughest moment for Warren came when a voter questioned her about her decision to get a DNA test to prove her Native American ancestry.

On immigration, the issue that has drawn the USA government to a halt, Warren spoke of a trip to the border she recently took.

Marilynn Leggio, 71, brought her teenage granddaughter with her to an Elizabeth Warren rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, last Friday evening.

KHALID: And, Michel, really that is kind of the crux that we've been hearing from her in Iowa.

In Sioux City, she grounded her pitch in her own family's life story, relating how they nearly fell into poverty when her father had a heart attack in middle age and her mother feared losing their house, which was saved when her mom got a minimum wage job.

The announcement that Warren, a liberal from MA, will shut down the Elizabeth Warren Action Fund, came from her spokeswoman, Kristen Orthman. She's secured Janice Rottenberg, whom the Associated Press credited with the Iowa Democratic Party's 2018 gains in the state legislature and Congress, and Brendan Summers, Sanders' 2016 Iowa caucus director.

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of MA has made her Iowa debut with all the look of a presidential candidate, bringing her brand of liberalism to the nation's premier caucus state. "Is this going to be a Democratic primary that truly is a grassroots movement, that is funded by the grassroots, that's done with grassroots volunteers?" A few hours earlier, in Sioux City, she declared, "Washington keeps working great for those with money, but not for anyone else. Sanders", Warren told supporters in Des Moines, "I'm not relitigating 2016", before pivoting to call all Democrats running for president to disavow super PACs, saying, "I think that all of the Democratic candidates, whoever they turn out to be, should link arms and say our primary is not for sale to billionaires".

Some of the questions she answered dealt with topics such as affordable housing, corporate power and preparing for 2020 presidential debates. "It's about the tens of millions of families across this country who just want a level playing field".

KHALID: Well, I would say if you were to drill down Sen.

"I'm ready for something good, something better, " she said. Warren's staff logged the names and contact information for those interested in more information.

In her Iowa swing, the MA senator made a rare move in kicking off the Iowa campaign in the western, rural part of the state - Council Bluffs - deep Republican territory and the congressional district of conservative firebrand Rep. Steve King. Barack Obama's Iowa political director for the 2008 caucus and as a senior adviser to Hillary Clinton in the state eight years later, has signed on with Warren, along with Janice Rottenberg, according to two sources.
