Republicans Furious That Sen. Elizabeth Warren Is Launching Exploratory Committee To Run For President In 2020
Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts announced that she is launching an exploratory committee, which is the first step to a presidential run in 2020 (video below).
Warren sent her pitch in a video emailed to supporters, notes The Washington Post:
America’s middle class is under attack. How did we get here? Billionaires and big corporations decided they wanted more of the pie. And they enlisted politicians to cut them a bigger slice.
Not surprisingly, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel attacked Warren as a “far-left obstructionist” and claimed she was “out of touch,” reports The Hill.
McDaniel used a tired old false Trump attack by calling Warren’s verified Native American ancestry a “phony claim to minority status.”
Every person in America should be able to work hard, play by the same set of rules, & take care of themselves & the people they love. That’s what I’m fighting for, & that’s why I’m launching an exploratory committee for president. I need you with me: https://t.co/BNl2I1m8OX pic.twitter.com/uXXtp94EvY— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) December 31, 2018
