The 7th Democratic Debate co-hosted by CNN and The Des Moines Register was held at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. Six candidates qualified for the debate in what was the smallest debate to date. The debate happened one day after Senator Warren accused Senator Sanders of privately telling her that a woman couldn't win the general election, an accusation Sanders vociferously denies. Another memorable element of the evening was Senator Klobuchar appearing to go on the attack against nearly everyone on the stage, especially the candidates she perceives as being too far left to win in a general election.
Elizabeth Warren spoke with PBS NewsHour correspondent Lisa Desjardins after the sixth Democratic Presidential debate to discuss the evening and how she felt it went. Warren spent much of the interview lamenting how money plays a major part in “every decision that gets made” in Washington and explained how her wealth tax would begin to help alleviate that. She also spoke about the importance of having a person of color on the Presidential ticket to better reflect the diversity of America.
The 6th Democratic debate co-hosted by PBS NewsHour and Politico will be held at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. The seven candidates who qualified will share the same stage for a single-night of debate. It begins at 8:00PM Eastern and is slated to end at 10:30PM. This will be the last debate of 2019.
Elizabeth Warren sat down with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show to have a more casual discussion about her 2020 candidacy for President. The two discussed Warren's proposed "wealth tax," Medicare for All, and, more lightly, why she is a fan of "pinky promises." Warren also played a game with Fallon where she had to answer rapid-fire questions on topics ranging from the somewhat serious to the downright silly.
Elizabeth Warren sat down with Lawrence O’Donnell on "Last Word" to discuss her 2020 Presidential campaign, Kamala Harris’ exit from the campaign, her proposed wealth tax and her healthcare plan that, she promises, will cover every American for less than what the vast majority are paying today.

Elizabeth Warren held a town hall in Iowa City, Iowa where she answered questions from the audience on topics ranging from her healthcare proposal to how she intends to help shrink the income gap between the rich and poor in the United States.

She spoke at length about her housing proposal, which she says includes $500 billion in federal investment that would build more than 3 million new housing units throughout the US. “That’s housing units in cities, that’s housing units in small towns, it’s housing units in rural areas," Warren stated.

Warren insisted the panel it would not.
The fourth Democratic debate at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio, just outside of Columbus, featured twelve candidates all sharing the same stage. Most observers paid close attention to how Senator Elizabeth Warren performance now that she is leading in many national polls and she had a fairly strong night. Eyes were also on Bernie Sanders, who is returning to the race after suffering a heart attack on October 1. He had a strong performance and is, at least for now, seeming to move on from his health emergency. Joe Biden had a relatively strong night without any major gaffes, but without any major memorable moment either.
Elizabeth Warren and her husband Bruce Mann spoke with CNN's MJ Lee where they had a more personal discussion about their life as a married couple.

She also attacked Trump for threatening war with Iran, reminding the audience that "no President gets to declare war on their own."
Elizabeth Warren sat down with Rachel Maddow one night after her biggest rally to date to discuss her thoughts about that rally, her thoughts on selfie lines, and her goal of building a grass roots movement to carry her to victory in 2020.

Elizabeth Warren held her largest rally to date in Washington Square Park in New York City in front of a raucous crowd there to hear her speak. Warren touched on the major themes of her campaign, even bringing up the deadly 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire in New York City as an example of how regular people can push back against corporate headwinds. Warren proclaimed "We’re not here today because of famous arches or famous men. In fact, we’re not here because of men at all. We’re here because of some hard-working women. Women who, more than a hundred years ago, worked long hours in a brown, 10-story building a block that way.”
Elizabeth Warren sat down with ABC News Correspondent Tom Llamas and a number of other commentators to discuss her performance in the third Democratic Presidential debate and how she feels she separated herself from the other nine candidates sharing the stage with her. Warren said she is grateful for the debates because they are "a terrific opportunity, these debates, for each one of us on that stage to be able to talk with the American people about who we are, and if you give us the chance, where we want to lead this country. All I hope for is that I was as clear as I could be."
The third Democratic debate in Houston brought the top ten candidates in the Democratic field onto the same stage for the first time and there was no shortage of lively discussion among the group. The top three candidates - Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders - stuck largely to their typical script, with neither of them delivering any major blows, to the likely relief of Joe Biden. The remaining seven candidates received ample time to deliver their message and answer questions from the moderators, but none appeared to deliver a breakout performance that would shake the top of the field up.

She also torched big corporations who, in her view, have taken over the political system to the detriment of the common person.
Elizabeth Warren participated in a forum hosted by the Native American group "Four Directions" where she spoke on a range of issues important to the Native American community. Warren also used the opportunity to deliver her most forceful apology to the Native American community over her botched roll out of a DNA test purportedly showing she had a small amount of Native American DNA in her bloodline. Warren offered no excuse and instead apologized "for the harm I have caused. I have listened and I have learned a lot, and I am grateful for the many conversations that we’ve had together.”
Elizabeth Warren delivered a campaign speech at the Iowa State Fair's "Political Soapbox" where she received a raucous welcome from the crowd, highlighting the ground game she has built in the first-in-the-nation caucus state.
