Warren sets up group to explore bid for United States presidency

US Senator Elizabeth Warren

Afterward, prominent members of the Cherokee Nation - a tribe to which she's claimed ancestry - criticized the move. And even some Democrats accused Warren of misunderstanding the complexity of race and identity.

"He raised a daughter who got to be a public school teacher, a law professor and a senator".

"How did we get here?" she asked rhetorically.

Now, as a likely presidential contender, she is making an appeal to the party's base.

In the video she discussed her working class family's struggle in Oklahoma to ensure her success, after her father had a heart attack and couldn't work, and her mother took a minimum wage job at Sears.

Warren is the most prominent Democrat yet to make a move toward a presidential bid and has always been a favorite target of President Trump.

"I've spent my career getting to the bottom of why America's promise works for some families, but others who work just as hard slip through the cracks and into disaster".

Trump has yet to comment on Warren's Monday announcement.

In an 8.30am email to supporters on New Year's Eve - 13 months before the first votes will be cast in the Iowa caucuses - Warren said she was forming an exploratory committee, which allows her to raise money and fill key staff positions before a formal kickoff of her presidential bid.

"Warren missed her moment in 2016, and there's reason to be skeptical of her prospective candidacy in 2020", the Boston Globe wrote in a scathing editorial in December.

Gerrard’s ‘not fit to wear the shirt’ blast lifts Rangers
The Gers have enjoyed a strong showing this season in the Scottish Premiership , but trail Celtic by three points. Gareth McAuley has a thigh problem, with Gerrard set to make a final decision on the quartet at the last minute.

In American politics jargon, this means the Democratic senator is most definitely running for president.

Warren won her Senate seat in 2012, defeating incumbent Sen.

Warren burst onto the national scene a decade ago during the financial crisis with calls for greater consumer protections. She is hoping her reputation as a populist fighter can help her navigate a Democratic field that could include almost two dozen candidates.

Warren appears to target voters of varied cultural, geographic and economic backgrounds with an anti-corporate, pro-worker message in her initial campaign pitch. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.), former Vice President Joe Biden, and outgoing Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas).

Warren did not say what she thought Democrats stood for at the time, but she now hopes to define the party in 2020.

It also suggested she had become too much of a "divisive figure", an apparent reference to the heavily publicized DNA test.

The release of the DNA test was seized upon by Trump as proof that Warren's Native American ancestry was a fraud. Now Cherokee Nation denies her, "DNA test is useless".

Warren's website can be found here.

"There are different theories on being effective, but she believes in picking issues that are super popular and forging coalitions to win on those issues", he said.
