As she started her three-day swing in Sioux City, the first question from the audience asked why she'd let President Trump, who ridicules her as "Pocahontas", dare her into taking a DNA test that indicated only marginal Native American heritage.

"It's time to dream big and fight hard, not just for those at the top, but for an America that works for everyone", Warren told about 500 in western Iowa Friday evening.

Certainly, her voice seems more relevant than Mr. 47 percent, Mitt Romney, who, in a leaked video of a 2012 speech to wealthy campaign donors, denounced almost half of Americans, who, he said, are "dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing". Outgoing Maryland Rep. John Delaney is the only Democrat so far to have formally announced a presidential campaign.

Warren made her Iowa debut calling for economic fairness in front of a cheering crowd of Iowa and Nebraska Democrats at a Council Bluffs, Iowa, bowling alley. The first Democratic presidential debate is this June, however. "We have to have an immigration system that understand the difference the threat posed by criminals and terrorists and 9-year-old girls", she said. "She's attracting high level campaign talent", Continetti said, and has offered the "most defined message of the candidates we're looking at right now on the left side, progressive left side".

She didn't hesitate, however, to allude to potential rivals Tom Steyer and Michael Bloomberg, both billionaires, by arguing for elections free from the influence of billionaires. "Whether we're talking about super PACs or self-funding as Democrats in a primary".

Despite the friendly receptions Warren received, few seemed ready to commit. But there's one thing I do know: I can't do this alone. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) announced on Thursday that she is shutting down her joint fundraising PAC. But, she said, she doesn't think it'll do Warren any harm. Dozens of candidates, including many of Warren's fellow senators, are likely to enter the contest. "Those are the issues we need to worry about, and that's where we need to focus".

"I'm in this fight because I am grateful", she said. You know it. I know it.

Warren recently announced she has launched an exploratory committee for her possible run for the role of President in 2020.

This time around, Warren will take center stage. Warren's staff logged the names and contact information for those interested in more information.

Warren was scheduled to close out her Iowa visit Sunday by meeting privately with Democratic activists at a Des Moines coffee shop and later with a public roundtable discussion with women in a Des Moines suburb. "I wish I could just open the door and have lots of folks in, but this is a way to do it", she said, adding that her beer of choice is Michelob Ultra, what she called "the club soda of beers". Cory Booker of New Jersey and Kamala Harris of California, have already been to Iowa, the hires make clear that Warren intends to compete in the state.
