Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren launches 2020 presidential bid

Elizabeth Warren of MA on Saturday officially kicked off her presidential campaign, telling voters that she plans to bring "big structural change" that curbs the power of the wealthy and levels the playing field for working-class Americans.

In the days leading up to Saturday's announcement, Warren has been weighed down by new questions over her past claims to Native American heritage.

She aimed for a broader institutional shift, urging supporters to choose "a government that makes different choices, choices that reflect our values".

Warren is set to visit New Hampshire Saturday as she begins the first leg of a six state campaign tour.

Ms Warren intends to spend Sunday in Iowa, where the lead-off caucuses will be the first test of candidates' viability. Day that she was surpassing an exploratory committee and seeking the Democratic nomination for the presidency, as did New Jersey Democratic Sen.

At the MA event, Warren added some biographical elements, describing herself, as a young mother entering law school, having to quickly toilet-train her toddler so she could leave the child at a day-care center while she attended classes.

Her profile started to rise in the late 2000s for her commanding attitudes in favour of more rigorous regulations in response to the 2007-2008 financial crisis.

And Ms Warren's launch comes at a challenging moment for the 69-year-old senator.

When probed by reporters about more documents this week, she alluded to the possibility that there were more in existence on which she claimed she is Native American.

Warren also declared that she would not accept campaign donations from lobbyists, corporate PACs, or super PACs, a stance that has quickly been adopted by her fellow democratic candidates.
