Massachusetts Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Monday she is filing paperwork to launch an exploratory committee for president, taking her first major step toward a 2020 run for the White House.
“Today, I’m launching an exploratory committee for president,” said Warren, 69, in a video released to supporters. In her announcement, she argued that government “has been bought and paid for by a bunch of billionaires and giant corporations that think they get to dictate the rules that affect everyone,” calling it “corruption, pure and simple.”
“That’s not how government is supposed to work,” Warren said. “You know it. I know it. And we know it is time to fight back.”
