Feb 10, 2019, 01:31
The Massachusetts lawmaker officially kicked off her campaign during a rally in Lawrence Saturday.
"Our fight is for big, structural change", said the MA senator, who throughout her speech invoked popular policies like Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, a wealth tax, and ambitious criminal justice reform. According to multiple sources familiar with the plans, Kennedy will discuss why he believes Warren's record on economic issues should set her apart from the rest of the ballooning 2020 presidential field.

Sounding very much like a single mother, Warren highlighted this as a major achievement - as her supporters smiled and laughed - and insisted that if she could do something like this, then anything is possible.
To no surprise, Warren drew sharp contrasts between herself and President Donald Trump, painting the president as a cancerous disease, while promoting her progressive agenda as the anecdote America desperately needs.
The campaign launch will test whether the controversy is simply a Washington obsession or a substantive threat to her candidacy. Doug Rubin, a Boston-based strategist who advised Warren during her first Senate run in 2012, said in an interview that most voters will respond to "the powerful message she's been talking about", in terms of battling social and economic injustices, rather than the back-and-forth over her personal identity.
Kennedy's decision to throw his support to his home state senator - and not his good friend, former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, who is considering a bid of his own - is a clear signal to fellow Democrats that she remains a serious primary contender despite a politically trying week.
