Elizabeth Warren supporters walk out of her launch speech on live TV – Washington Examiner
Supporters present at Elizabeth Warren’s official announcement for her bid for president walked out during her speech.
Warren held a rally at an outdoor venue in Lawrence, Mass., where she announced that she is officially seeking the Democratic nomination to run against President Trump in 2020.
About 30 minutes before the conclusion of her speech, attendees standing behind her could be seen leaving the event.
Warren teased that she would be making her announcement at 11 a.m. on Saturday, but she did not take stage until around an hour after the scheduled slot, during which time attendees stood outside in freezing temperatures.
The high temperature in Lawrence Saturday was 32 degrees.
Other speakers engaged the audience for an hour before Warren arrived on stage, including Rep. Joe Kennedy III, D-Mass., who introduced Warren after announcing this week that he would not run for president in 2020.
Warren made the official announcement more than a month after she launched her bid with a presidential exploratory committee.
She joins a growing field of Democratic nominees in what is expected to be a crowded pool of primary candidates.
