CAMBRIDGE, MA (WBZ-AM/24/7 Metro Source) — Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is exploring a run for the Oval Office in 2020.
She made a video announcement Monday after changing her Twitter handle over the weekend dropping Massachusetts.
Speaking in Boston, Warren remarked that she's in the fight for working families. She's looking to build a nationwide grassroots movement to support her run. She added that she wants to see a government that works for regular Americans, not just companies and for-profit colleges.
When asked about what could be a large field of Democratic presidential candidates, she said it's great that there's a strong group of Democrats that's willing to fight for what they believe in.

Warren enters a Democratic field that's shaping up as the most crowded in decades, with many of her Senate colleagues openly weighing their own campaigns, as well as governors, mayors and other prominent citizens. One of her most significant competitors could be Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent who is eyeing another presidential run harnessing the same populist rhetoric.
The Republican National Committee is calling Senator Elizabeth Warren's presidential announcement "out of touch" and "extreme." RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel criticized the Massachusetts Democrat for her Native American ancestry by calling it a "phony claim to minority status." McDaniel added that Warren is an "extreme far-left obstructionist" who will not be able to beat President Donald Trump and is "out of touch and a total fraud." Warren is the first big-name Democrat to announce a bid for the 2020 presidential contest.
