Senator Elizabeth Warren to formally launch 2020 presidential campaign

Sen. Elizabeth Warren waves at the crowd ahead of a campaign rally in Lawrence Massachusetts

But it is the story of Warren's family that also had the 2020 candidate facing fresh questions about her credibility this week. They're both leaders of the Democrats' liberal vanguard, but some Sanders supporters are still upset she didn't support him during his 2016 primary challenge against Hillary Clinton.

The disclosure prompted yet another public apology from the senator, just days after she had expressed remorse to Cherokee leaders for using a DNA test a year ago to try to show her Native American ancestry. 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. "I was a Republican because I thought that those were the people who best supported markets", she said.

A Monmouth University poll released this week placed Mrs. Warren, who won easily re-election to her Senate seat previous year, third in the nomination battle behind a couple of men who have yet to enter the race - former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. But it's not yet clear whether the revival of the Native American controversy on Wednesday could hurt public opinion of the senator.

Kennedy will announce his support for Warren in a speech introducing her Saturday, they said.

In 2003, Senator John Kerry chose for his announcement not the reliably blue MA, but the red state of SC, and stressed his military service during a time of war by using a US Navy ship for a backdrop.

The decision to pick Lawrence as the site for her campaign launch is in line with her presentation of herself as an economic populist fighting for the working and middle classes against the rich and big banks and corporations.

She got some of her biggest applause when she talked about her plan to change politics, repeating a pledge not to take money from special interests. In an email to supporters last week, the campaign wrote: "Underpaid, overworked, and flat-out exploited workers from more than 50 countries gave Lawrence the nickname 'Immigrant City'".

Leak of President Trump's schedules a 'disgraceful breach of trust': White House
On Sunday, when the Axios story broke, Trump was finishing up a round of golf with Mulvaney at his golf club in Jupiter, Florida. It has also been widely reported that Trump consults with informal advisers such as Fox News host Sean Hannity.

In particular the separation of migrant children from their families at the border. We'll see... What do U think, Perezcious readers?!

Warren has often spoken of how her parents eloped after her father's family disapproved of his future wife's Native American lineage, but Warren for years could never produce documentation to bolster her claims.

Warren has proposed an "ultra-millionaire" tax that adds an annual 2 percent levy on wealth over $50 million and a 3 percent tax on those with assets worth more than $1 billion. Billionaires would pay an additional 1%. Warren took heat for not only the distant nature of her relative-by her own admission, she could be as little as 1/1,024th Native American-but also for delving into the world of race science and seemingly playing into Trump's hands. Warren did not address the potential for another distracting revelation when asked by reporters on Capitol Hill this week.

And some Democrats in early voting states have seemed unfazed.

"These workers - led by women - didn't have much".

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
