Elizabeth Warren stands by her Cherokee ancestry claims at rally

Elizabeth Warren stands by her Cherokee ancestry claims at rally

Elizabeth Warren announced that she was starting an exploratory committee in advance of a 2020 Presidential run. But, this weekend, Elizabeth Warren, the senator from MA, is making her first trip across the state since announcing her exploratory presidential committee on New Year's Eve.

The Associated Press reports that Warren has already hired Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders' 2016 caucus manager in Iowa, Brendan Summers, for her unannounced bid for president.

"You know, I'm glad you asked that question, I genuinely am, and I'm glad for us to have a chance to talk about it", Warren responded. We need to call this out for what it is: "It is corruption, pure and simple". "And it needs to stop".

"This is how it starts". When her microphone cut out at the opening event in Council Bluffs, Warren didn't yell because, even in a room of 300 (with 200 more outside) she didn't have to. All three locales are in counties Trump won handily in the 2016 election.

Sen. Warren told crowds Saturday she's working on building a grassroots team early.

"I'm in this fight because I am grateful", she said. "I'm in this fight because it's been the fight of my lifetime". She has a record of actually getting things done; the Consumer Financial Protection Board owes its existence to her. Scott Brown in 2012, and legislation she passed that will drastically lower the cost of hearing aids. Warren will also convene a conversation with female leaders in nearby Ankeny on Sunday morning. "All my hiring records, including a DNA test, it's out there, it's online, anyone can look at it", she added.

However, the first question from the audience was not about her economic agenda, but about the same old topic - her Native American lineage and controversial decision to take a DNA test that revealed it.

"Why did you undergo the DNA testing and give Donald Trump more fodder to be a bully?" a woman asked.

And the senator reiterated the fact that she is not a person of color. I'm not a citizen of a tribe. Tribal citizenship is very different from ancestry. However, indigenous tribes quickly slammed the results as a stunt and said it is not acceptable to demonstrate "tribal affiliation".

"What I want to see is what the field's going to look like, and how these individuals do in putting together outreach around the state", said Matt McCoy, a former Democratic state senator and current Polk County supervisor, adding that Warren had called him late past year as she laid the groundwork for her presidential announcement.

The questioner, though, seemed less concerned about the offense the test caused to some Native Americans than its potential to fuel President Donald Trump's attacks. This week, he tweeted out a fake bumper sticker mocking the senator.

Warren also has some other issues.

McLain-Meister, a senior copy editor at a global advertising firm in Des Moines, likes Senator Warren but hasn't settled on a favorite candidate yet. The move was meant to rebut Trump's taunts of Warren as "Pocahontas".

A poll of likely Iowa caucus-goers taken by CNN and the Des Moines Register in December found Warren in fourth place behind Joe Biden, Beto O'Rourke, and Sanders, none of whom have announced exploratory committees.

"Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong", Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr said at the time, accusing Warren of "undermining tribal interests".

Keeping track of so many candidates will be hard, so we're providing a handy guide for each of the candidates as they declare they're running. And he anticipated voters would be ready for Warren's message.

"It's just playing into his hands", Plank said.
