Senator Elizabeth Warren has joined the 2020 United States presidential race, after announcing on Monday that she will be developing an exploratory committee, according to a report on the Wall Street Journal.
With the exploratory committee, Warren will be able to formally raise funds and make key staff appointments before she officially kicks off her presidential campaign.
The Democratic politician from Massachusetts, who has made quite a name for herself due to her criticisms of corporations, large banks, and most recently, cryptocurrency, has become the first major candidate to declare her desire to run for the highest office in the United States government.
She also released an announcement video on her website, which contained some of the regular anti-Wall Street sentiments that will no doubt be a central theme of her campaign platform. In the video, which was posted on Monday, Warren said: America’s middle class is under attack. 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.
