Democracy for America’s Executive Director, Charles Chamberlain, issued the following statement following Warren’s announcement:

“Our country needs a 2020 Democratic nominee defined by bold, inclusive populist ideas and a vision for the future of the country that wins the support of the New American Majority of people of color and progressive white voters.

“Senator Elizabeth Warren’s formal entrance into the 2020 race for President today helps launch what we believe will be a vibrant discussion of bold, inclusive populist ideas in the Democratic Primary, and we look forward to the wide array of progressive candidates that we expect to join her in it in the year ahead.” — Charles Chamberlain, Executive Director, Democracy for America

In late 2014 and early 2015,  Democracy for America (DFA) worked with MoveOn.org to encourage Senator Warren to run for President in the 2016 election.  In late 2015, following an endorsement vote of its grassroots progressive members, DFA endorsed Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic Presidential Primary.

Earlier this month, DFA released the results of its first 2020 Presidential Pulse Poll and made it clear that its presidential endorsement was “up for grabs.”


CRITICS AND OPINION ABOUND:

CNN’s Enten: Warren is a below-par candidate: https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2018/12/31/elizabeth-warren-polls-2020-enten-nr-vpx.cnn

DID WARREN MISS HER CHANCE: https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/31/politics/elizabeth-warren-2020-presidential-donald-trump/index.html 

This is what she will have to contend with: “RNC: Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren ‘out of touch’ and a ‘fraud'” https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/campaigns/rnc-presidential-candidate-elizabeth-warren-out-of-touch-and-a-fraud 

My opinion? Wait and see!I am looking forward to a robust turnout of contenders from the Democratic Party…..
