That includes Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who announced in an email to supporters that she was thinking about running.

"But what I can do is, I can be in this fight for all of our family", Warren continued. Elizabeth Warren risked political backlash here by opting to avoid a trip to Iowa during the critical midterm elections - the only major potential 2020 candidate to do so. During a debate for her 2018 reelection campaign, Warren tried to defend herself by saying the reason she released the results of her DNA test were to restore trust in government again.

Politico ran a piece comparing Warren's likability issues to those of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Warren compared the efforts involved in how she wanted to remake America to those of the abolitionists, the suffragettes, and the civil rights movement.

Warren became emotional as she described her frustration at witnessing the Trump administration's border security policies. I'm not a citizen of a tribe.

Warren has repeatedly declined to go in-depth on Trump's rhetoric and has not frequently mentioned him by name while traversing Iowa, instead focusing on her key talking points like the economic issues for working- and middle-class Americans, including student loan debt, strengthening unions, consumer protections and getting corporate money out of politics. "That's what I'm fighting for and that's why today I'm launching an exploratory committee for president". But her Iowa debut, beginning Friday evening and continuing across the state Saturday, offered the first glimpse of what she may look like as a 2020 candidate. "Tribes-and only tribes-determine tribal citizenship, and I respect that difference" between ancestry and citizenship. However, indigenous tribes quickly slammed the results as a stunt and said it is not acceptable to demonstrate "tribal affiliation".

"I'm ready for something good, something better", she said.

"I'd like to see how she deals with people one-on-one, that interaction between her and regular folks", said Jan Bauer, the Story County Democratic chairwoman, who planned to attend the private event with Warren Saturday.

And, is there a potential for a primary challenger for President Trump?

"No one's raised it", she said. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., accompanied by her husband Bruce Mann, Thursday, Jan. 3, 2019, in the Old Senate Chamber on Capitol Hill in Washington.

Iowan Nicki Johnson, sporting a "Nevertheless, She Persisted" t-shirt, said she was undecided, but she too praised Warren for her conspicuous decision to not assail Trump.

KHALID: No. I mean, there's going to be some two dozen candidates who are Democrats likely to jump in.

Kirsten Gillibrand, a senator from NY and former lawyer, is being touted as a contender but may be on the outer with some influential Democrats after she said Bill Clinton should have resigned over the Monica Lewinsky scandal. For the remaining time, she answered questions from audience members. "You would have to ask her psychiatrist".
