Sen. Elizabeth Warren announced earlier in the week that she was formally establishing a presidential campaign exploratory committee. This announcement came in an email to supporters, with an accompanying video message posted online.
The Democratic senator from Massachusetts says at the start of the new, 4 1/2-minute video: "in our country, if you work hard and play by the rules, you ought to be able to take care of yourself and the people you love. No matter where you live in America or no matter where your family came from in the world, you deserve a path to opportunity. That’s the America I am fighting for, and that is why today I am launching an exploratory committee for president.”
Warren has long been on the shortlist of potential 2020 Democratic candidates, though more than two dozen other Democrats are also rumored to be considering presidential runs.
