Elizabeth Warren has one key asset in her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination: a clearly defined campaign plan.

But voters are still worried about her electability —and how she will set herself apart ideologically from Bernie Sanders.  https://lat.ms/2vRNE3s 

On the stump, Warren has been unfurling one carefully honed policy proposal after another:
➡️Child care
➡️Student-debt relief
➡️A tax on giant fortunes
➡️Combating opioid addiction  https://lat.ms/2JDwVZU 

She has an unchanging populist message rooted in years of arguing, as a professor and politician, that the government now works for people with money and power, not the middle class.

“This is my life’s work,” she told The Times.  https://lat.ms/2vRNE3s 

At a candidate forum held by She the People, Warren got a standing ovation for speaking bluntly about racism and her specific plans to remedy it in healthcare, housing and other areas.  https://lat.ms/2JA7qsd 

But a source of doubt comes from a common belief, even among many women, that after Hillary Clinton’s defeat in 2016, Democrats risk another loss if they nominate a woman.

But Warren reminds voters that she faced similarly deep doubts when she ran for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts in 2012 against a popular Republican incumbent.

People warned then that the state was not ready to elect a woman.  https://lat.ms/2vRNE3s
