Before Warren spoke Saturday in Iowa, Judy Plank, a Democrat who had driven down from Le Mars, about a half-hour north, said she was concerned Warren had, in publicizing the results, set herself up for further ridicule from the President.

Warren recently announced she has launched an exploratory committee for her possible run for the role of President in 2020.

The suggestion mocks Sen.

Warren, who has long since claimed to be part Cherokee based on little evidence other than a racist stereotype about Native Americans having "high cheekbones" and a family cookbook titled "Pow Wow Chow", is less than 1/1,024 Native American by scientific consensus, based on an analysis of her DNA - and even that is questionable.

One attendee questioned Warren's decision to take a DNA test past year to prove her Native American heritage to President Donald Trump.

"I'm glad you asked that question", Warren responded.

In Iowa, Warren said her childhood in Oklahoma shaped her populist economic views.

"We're now in the 13th day of the shutdown, we have hundreds of thousands of federal employees not getting their paychecks and work that's not being done all around this country", said Warren.

The Associated Press reports that Warren has already hired Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders' 2016 caucus manager in Iowa, Brendan Summers, for her unannounced bid for president. "Is this going to be a Democratic primary that truly is a grassroots movement, that is funded by the grassroots, that's done with grassroots volunteers?"

"I am looking for somebody with broad appeal so we can pull in some of the independents and the Republicans", said Jean McGinnis, 49, as she waited in line to get a photo taken with Warren after a rally in Sioux City.

Former Obama aide Tommy Vietor called Parcell's hiring a "huge, huge get for Warren".

Local police press officer Monika Kosiec told reporters that the injured man was thought to be 25 years old. The man was taken to hospital with burns and has not yet been able to be quizzed by investigators.

"But what I can do is I can be in this fight for all of our families because ultimately I think what 2020 is going to be about is not about my family, it's about the tens of millions of families across this country who just want a level playing field", she said.

"Warren missed her moment in 2016, and there's reason to be skeptical of her prospective candidacy in 2020", the editorial board wrote. For the remaining time, she answered questions from audience members.

"I'm ready for something good, something better", she said. "But I still don't know enough about Sen". Warren's staff logged the names and contact information for those interested in more information.

Iowa's caucuses, local political meetings held statewide and run by the party, are scheduled to begin the 2020 nominating campaign in February 2020.

Price, the Democratic Party chair, says he's noticed three main traits Iowans are referring to when they talk about electability; competence, authenticity and a willingness to fight back against Trump.

In speeches to packed rooms from the state's western border with Nebraska to its capital in Des Moines, Warren spent the weekend demanding "structural change" in Washington, where the partial government shutdown is entering its third week.
