"This is the fight of my life". "That is the reason why I'm in the fight", she told reporters. "Now frankly, it's hard to see what boxes she checks at all", she quipped. "And what matters to us is that everybody gets a fighting chance".

The Democratic senator talked a lot about the federal government investing too much in America's wealthy and well-connected at her events in Council Bluffs, Sioux City and Des Moines.

And fighting a cold that, by the time her third event of the day rolled around, left her voice nearly completely strained. "The good news is nevertheless I persist", she said to laughter and applause. "I lost my voice when I first ran for the Senate, so there you go". In her opening foray, Warren has seemed content to continue on that path, advocating for Medicaid not just as a program for the poor but also as one that benefits seniors and Americans suffering from mental illness, while assailing the "shameful" behavior of insurance companies.

"She's not afraid to stand toe to toe with Trump", he said. Warren said she was fed up with "racial slurs" and "a lot of ugly stuff" directed at her, so she made a decision to "put it all out there" to stop the talking.

But her decision in 2020, Wertz said, would turn on more concrete questions. "Not a nibble here and a piece there". The election is "not about my family, but about the tens of millions of families across this country who just want a level playing field".

Trump needled Warren again on Thursday for claiming she is of Native American heritage. That underscores two challenges for Warren this weekend: She is not coming in as an obvious front-runner, and she might be compared, in voters' minds, to the idealized versions of other campaigns that have yet to take shape.

But Trump has continued to criticize her and say the test was not valid.

Outside another event, a Trump supporter was arrested for allegedly assaulting another attendee with a selfie stick. When one man grabbed at his sign, Thom hit him in the head with his selfie stick, leading to a swift arrest by security officers for disorderly conduct.

"I am not a person of color; I am not a citizen of a tribe", the 2020 presidential hopeful said during a Saturday campaign event in Sioux City, Iowa, according to video of the event.

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

The game was the first time Leonard had faced San Antonio since he requested a trade and was sent to Toronto this summer. Even in a small sample, it's wild how the presence of Green does that much for Toronto in Kawhi-centric lineups.

During the run-up to the 2016 election, for example, the first Republican and Democrat hopefuls formally announced their bids in March and April of 2015.

His top choice is Sen.

In an apparent attempt to set the record straight, Warren acknowledged that she was not a minority.

"I think that campaigns should not be for sale", she said. "We need someone who knows we're going to be the ones taking care of the planet".

"Warren missed her moment in 2016, and there's reason to be skeptical of her prospective candidacy in 2020", the editorial board wrote.

KHALID: You know, I would say that in general, it was kind of an unusual approach because she doesn't really - she hasn't actually attacked the president directly since she announced her intention to run for president.

In Storm Lake, Warren held a roundtable with the city's police chief, superintendent of schools and a social worker. It was Eliason's first time meeting Warren, who hadn't been to Iowa since 2014.

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

Warren covered a range of issues, addressing questions from the audience on the future of the Democratic party, healthcare and immigration. "I don't have the power to do that". "Some of those guys are crooks, and you've got to be able to scream at them".
