"She's got a message that speaks to the heart of the Democratic Party", said Kathy Miller, the chair of the Guthrie County Democrats in central Iowa, who came to Des Moines to hear Warren speak Saturday night.

The Iowa caucuses are scheduled to officially begin in February 2020. "For that reason alone, Democrats can do better". "I lost my voice when I first ran for the Senate, so there you go". Trump followed up that second-place Iowa finish with a win ten days later in New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary and was well on his way to securing the Republican presidential nomination.

"I'm impressed", Schmedinghoff said after hearing from Warren.

Also notable are Warren's relatively low approval ratings - a December Quinnipiac University poll pegged her at only 30 percent favorability.

Democratic 2020 USA presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren speaks during an event in Des Moines, Iowa.

Numerous commenters on Twitter noted that when the video is slowed down to normal speed, the number of people waiting in line does not look particularly large. She filled her event spaces to capacity, with five stops before hundreds in attendance at each, and appeared with an entourage of staff and reporters following every move.

But that came up only briefly during a trip that rewarded Warren with robust crowds and expressions of support, a year before Iowans have to choose a favorite. Bernie Sanders as the Democratic front-runners. Former Housing Secretary Julian Castro is expected to formally announce a bid soon, and other candidates ― including everyone from former Vice President Joe Biden to California Sen. Amy Klobuchar, New Jersey Sen.

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who this week formed an exploratory committee for president, was forced to address the results of her infamous DNA test from last fall when a voter confronted her about her motives behind releasing the test's results.

At times, she showed off a droll wit: "How do you debate someone who isn't interested in civility or in facts?" one audience member asked at the Des Moines event. "As a retired person whose entire retirement savings is in the stock market, I remember the 2008 crash and don't want to see that happen again", said Barbara Stroud, 71, who quizzed Warren about banking regulations before a roundtable discussion in Storm Lake.

The woman later grabs her ticket and walks away, but a second video shows her on her knees, handcuffed by police. "She has a gun on her?" a anxious witness can be heard asking as the woman picks up her bag and storms off.

Despite the website's insistence that Warren's claims to Native American ancestry are not problematic, the senator spent her first week on the campaign trail seemingly making amends to tribal nations. "I am not a person of colour. Tribes - and only tribes - determine tribal citizenship, and I respect that difference". Tribal citizenship is very different from ancestry.

"I am not a citizen of a tribe".

"I can't stop Donald Trump from what he's going to do", Warren said.

Warren said she will be closing her political action committee (PAC), the Elizabeth Warren Action Fund, proclaiming that USA elections "shouldn't be for sale".

What did the DNA test results show?

And fighting a cold that, by the time her third event of the day rolled around, left her voice nearly completely strained. Trump loomed in the background of her proposals and the image she conjured of a free-for-all in Washington, even if she did not say his name.

"So first piece of bad news is I've picked up a cold".

"This is the fight of my life", Warren told a crowd packed into a function room at a bowling alley in Council Bluffs on Friday.

"It is corruption, pure and simple and it's time to fight back", Senator Warren said.
