Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren speaks to reporters outside her home in Cambridge, Mass., on Dec. 31, after announcing plans to explore a campaign for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren essentially kicked off her 2020 presidential campaign on Monday, announcing an exploratory committee — a formal step toward seeking the Democratic nomination for president in 2020 — along with outlining a pitch to voters.

In a highly produced 4 1/2 minute video emailed to supporters on New Year’s Eve, Warren made a populist political appeal, recounting her own middle class background and her work on consumer financial protections.

Warren insisted the middle class is “under attack” from corporations and the right, including President Trump, who she vowed can be defeated in 2020.
