Elizabeth Warren Talks Iowa Trip, Drinking Beer On Instagram Live

Sen. Warren reveals beer of choice after Instagram video goes viral

Warren is the first major candidate to announce running for president, beating out several other well-known Democrats who are expected to announce whether they are running in the next few months. Elizabeth Warren has hired Barack Obama's former chief digital strategist to help lead her emerging 2020 presidential campaign and has also recruited a Democratic operative with deep experience in Southern politics ahead of a long primary.

"Washington works great for those with money but not for anyone else". Here, hundreds of people snaked around one block then wrapped around another, waiting outside for her evening appearance. You know it. I know it.

"Why did you undergo the DNA testing and give Donald Trump more fodder to be a bully?" a woman asked.

Warren's travels will continue with an event Saturday night in the state capital of Des Moines, followed by a meeting with female leaders on Sunday in the rapidly growing suburb of Ankeny.

The move backfired on Warren, who was criticized for badly miscalculating.

The response from Warren on her heritage was prompted by an audience member during a question and answer portion following the senator's speech.

"That minimum wage job saved our house and it saved our family", Warren said. "America's middle class is under attack".

At that, Warren pivoted back to her campaign message, saying: "What I can do is I can be in this fight for all of our families".

On the Democratic side, the field is getting crowded, with more than thirty candidates reportedly considering presidential bids.

'What I think 2020 is going to be about is not my family, it's about the tens of millions of families across this country who just want a level playing field'.

"Now I can't stop Donald Trump from what he's gonna do, I can't stop him from hurling racial insults", Warren said.

Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) speaks to the press during an organizing event at the Orpheum Theater on January 5, 2019 in Sioux City, Iowa.

Last year, Warren took some hits for skipping Iowa during the midterm elections even as everyone from Biden to Sens.

Warren said that she initially claimed Native American ancestry because she grew up in Oklahoma, where many people trace their roots to indigenous cultures.

"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.

"These are unsafe times for our country".

That's after the 2020 aspirant suffered setbacks past year, when she was widely criticized for the clumsy October release of the results of a DNA test in an attempt to address her previous Native American ancestry claims.

Trump frequently belittles Warren's claims by calling her "Pocahantas", but she faced criticism from fellow Democrats and Native Americans for taking the test. She agreed she was "not a person of color" or "a citizen of a tribe". "I wish I could just open the door and have lots of folks in, but this is a way to do it", she said, adding that her beer of choice is Michelob Ultra, what she called "the club soda of beers".
