Urging any Democratic candidates who launch 2020 presidential campaigns to follow suit, Sen.

When asked how she will deal with the continuing mockery from Trump, Warren responded that the president "can bluster forever, but it doesn't change the underlying reality".

Just before speaking, the power went out at McCoy's Bar, Patio and Grill, leaving Warren to speak in the dark. According to Warren, this ancestor was in her family during some time in the 1800s.

"Michelob Ultra - the club soda of beers", Warren said.

But this weekend's trip will be her first swing through Iowa since she stumped for a Senate candidate there in 2014 - making her a latecomer to the state following visits by possible presidential candidates including Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, and a particularly buzzy speech by Cory Booker last fall.
