2020 hopeful Elizabeth Warren heading to western Iowa, Des Moines

2020 hopeful Elizabeth Warren heading to western Iowa, Des Moines

But less than a week into the new year, Warren already flipped that on its head, becoming the first major candidate to land on the ground in the first-in-the-nation presidential caucus state, lapping up media attention, locking down key staff and organizers, and capitalizing on pent-up 2020 Democratic excitement.

"It's time to dream big and fight hard, not just for those at the top, but for an America that works for everyone", Warren told about 500 people at a Friday night event. He will oversee the senator's grassroots mobilization, national operations and planning in the early states, they said.

Over the weekend, Warren was asked a couple of times by voters how she'll appeal to people in Republican-leaning states.

Price, the Democratic Party chair, says he's noticed three main traits Iowans are referring to when they talk about electability; competence, authenticity and a willingness to fight back against Trump. And joining her in Iowa was Joe Rospars, a recent Warren hire who was Barack Obama's digital strategist during his successful 2008 and 2012 campaigns. "All Democratic presidential candidates should reject and actively discourage billionaires from funding shady efforts on their behalf".

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

The last two years under Donald Trump have created a sense of urgency for Democrats, said Troy Price, the chairman of the Iowa Democratic Party. Billionaires including environmentalist Tom Steyer and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg are considering runs, and Steyer plans to visit Iowa on Wednesday.

"We should be talking about issues, not about flashy statements", Bednarski said.

Despite the friendly reception that Warren received, retired teacher Carla Hawkins of Council Bluffs was far from ready to commit. "But honestly, I think everybody is ready". And, Michel, I would say the constant thing I've been hearing from people is they're looking for someone who's electable, somebody who can beat Donald Trump.

Warren was scheduled to close out her Iowa visit Sunday by meeting privately with Democratic activists at a Des Moines coffee shop and later with a public roundtable discussion with women in a Des Moines suburb. "I just want to know whoever we nominate is strong. Meanwhile, a September poll indicated that MA voters were more enthusiastic about Patrick making a White House bid than Warren". She says she has no doubt the MA senator would do a good job.

"We need somebody who is focusing on our generation", Bashore said.

Warren recently announced she has launched an exploratory committee for her possible run for the role of President in 2020.

"I'm glad you asked that question", Warren responded. Warren is the first or second choice of 18 percent of voters, but 17 percent would "never support the person for president". "Tribes, and only tribes, determine tribal citizenship, and I respect that difference", Warren said.

In speeches to packed rooms from the state's western border with Nebraska to its capital in Des Moines, Warren spent the weekend demanding "structural change" in Washington, where the partial government shutdown is entering its third week.
