War­ren an­nounces bid for pres­i­dency in 2020

The Guardian Weekly - - Global report -

Sen­a­tor Eliz­a­beth War­ren jumped into the race for pres­i­dent on Mon­day, an­nounc­ing she is form­ing an ex­ploratory com­mit­tee for 2020. The Mas­sachusetts Demo­crat, known for her cri­tiques of big banks and cor­po­ra­tions, be­came the first ma­jor can­di­date to de­clare her in­ten­tions with a video that was posted on­line on New Year’s Eve.

“Amer­ica’s mid­dle class is un­der at­tack,” she said. “How did we get here? Bil­lion­aires and big cor­po­ra­tions de­cided they wanted more of the pie and they en­listed politi­cians to cut them a fat­ter slice.”

War­ren, 69, is en­ter­ing what is likely to be a crowded Demo­cratic pri­mary field seek­ing to take on pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump.
