Elizabeth Warren is one of the many female candidates who have decided to battle it out for the Democratic nomination for 2020.
The Senator is one of the front-runners in a race that includes over a dozen people at this point in time.
However, Warren also knows that she’s not the one to beat, either – that title belongs to Joe Biden at this point in time.
Warren isn’t without a plan, however. She has a plan to win Iowa, which is the first-in-the-nation caucus.
Once she wins that state, she feels as though she’ll have the forward momentum that will help her to win the nomination.
There’s a lot of stickers involved in Warren’s plan. Brightly colored circles were affixed to every attendee at the events that Warren has been at across Eastern Iowa.
The stickers signify that the attendees’ contact information has been obtained. She’s almost obsessive over the capturing data on the potential supporters – and she has quite a number of people dedicated to the cause.
She’s an organizer.
Anyone can see that she “has a plan for that” as her campaign says. She wants to out-organize all of the other Democratic candidates.
With over 50 staffers in Iowa alone, she has big plans to try to win the state – and part of this includes getting the contact information of supporters throughout her campaign trail.
Elizabeth Warren feels it is important to do a lot of face-to-face campaigning. She is focused on building a grassroots movement, and she knows that happens by talking to people one person at a time.
Even though her campaign isn’t expecting a victory, she is looking to catapult in front of the others running for office. She also knows that a win over or Joe Biden and some of the other rivals could prove that she does have an electable status.
Democrats, in general, are concerned about who is capable of winning not only the Democratic nomination but also capable of beating Trump. This is going to be one of the biggest aspects that voters will look at because they want someone who is capable of actually taking the office.
If Warren can come out strong in Iowa, her staffers believe it’s the best way to erase concerns about whether she can pull it off or not.
Shortage of funds?
Warren understands that it is a risk to come out as big as she is. Committing to the number of salaries that she has could prevent her from having the cash flow needed for digital and TV advertising in the weeks prior to voting beginning.
Warren has also sworn off the high-dollar fundraisers that many of her fellow Democrats are seeking. Warren is committed to the cause, however.
She transferred $10.4 million out of her Senate reelection account in order to give her the cushion needed to see the campaign trail through to the end.
Right now, Warren is working almost exclusively in Iowa. She has attended 34 campaign events, which is considerably more than any of the other states.
There are also another 200 events scheduled by her campaign where she would be in attendance.
She will be duplicating her model in other states, including New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina. As for getting to all 50 states, it likely won’t happen.
She is prioritizing where she needs to be in a very strategic way. She will be focusing primarily on states with major manufacturing industries.
Elizabeth Warren is also focused on a number of different things as part of the pillars of her platform. She plans to have an aggressive intervention in order to create more jobs, which includes investing $2 trillion into climate-friendly industries over the next decade.
Many of the spending proposals that she has as part of her platform will rely on institutional tax hikes on corporations and richer individuals in America. Some critics believe that she is making false promises to voters because the spending proposals are not deliverable.
Further, Warren’s platform doesn’t focus on immigration, which has proven to be a hot topic for Republicans and Democrats alike.
The Massachusetts Senator seems to have a plan for everything, including pledging to choose a public school teacher to replace Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary.
Whether her plan will be enough to catapult in front of Joe Biden and obtain the Democratic nomination is yet to be seen.
Once the Iowa caucus takes place, it will be easier to see what kind of progress she is making.
