Warren's debut trip to Iowa ignites voter passion

Joe Rospars, who led former President Obama's digital strategy in both 2008 and 2012, has joined Warren's newly launched presidential exploratory committee in a senior capacity, according to two sources familiar with staffing.

But she also faced at least one fraught question, from a former student who said she backed Warren's bid but anxious that her former professor's support for abortion rights would sink her chances in the Midwest.

At this early stage, it's likely that any polls won't tell us much.

Other Democratic presidential prospects are expected to announce their plans in the coming weeks, and have been in touch for weeks with party leaders, activists and potential staff in Iowa.

Warren described her 2020 presidential campaign run as the "fight of her life". Her campaign called it "gendered nonsense".

However, he also said some Democrats question Warren's political instincts, such as touting a DNA test in October that showed she has some Native American ancestry. "This is going to be the fish-or-cut-bait year for the Democrats", said Ms. Warren, in what was clearly a well-rehearsed declaration.

"I'm really looking forward to the opportunity to be out and listen to people who are working hard and playing by the rules and trying to hold it together every day", Warren said in an interview at the Capitol on Thursday, shortly before being sworn in to a second term.

Warren is hardly an unknown candidate in Iowa, but she may try to connect with voters anew by talking about her modest upbringing in Oklahoma, far from the halls of Harvard and the Capitol where she is more readily associated.

Warren will have the chance to forge more personal connections with the state's activists and powerbrokers, starting Saturday with about 20 Democratic activists at a private home in central Iowa and Sunday at a Des Moines cafe.

"For me, this is a question about the role of law", she said. Warren said, when asked by reporters about the tweet. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent who is eyeing another presidential run harnessing the same populist rhetoric.

The number of possible Democratic candidates stretches well into the 20s.

Warren's visit is an effort to gain an early advantage in the state. "But I still don't know enough about Sen".
