Sen. Elizabeth Warren of MA brought her 2020 bid for the Democratic Presidential nomination to 800 supporters, who packed the West End Community Center in Greenville. Warren shared her story and how it forged her positions on education in general and teachers specifically, on the importance of a vibrant middle class, voting rights, diversity, immigration, healthcare and drug prices.
