CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KWWL) – After making her formal announcement Saturday, Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts made stops in Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, and Davenport.

Addressing a few dozen people, Senator Warren touched on a variety of topics from minimum wage to prescription drug prices.

“Washington should not be working for giant drug companies, it should be working for people who need to get prescriptions filled,” said Warren.

Warren also said she wanted to “end lobbying as we know it.”

“Don’t let foreign countries hire lobbyists in Washington, that’s just nuts!” said Warren.

A vocal critic of President Donald Trump, Warren briefly mentioning his campaign for reelection.

“By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be president. In fact, he may not even be a free person,” said Warren.

Warren said she didn’t want to get ahead of the investigation by Robert Mueller when asked if she supported the idea of impeaching President Trump.

“I think it important that we protect the Mueller investigation, that we absolutely insist that the entire report be made public when it’s completed, and then we will know what to do and I will be prepared to do it,” answered Warren.

Warren said today that she wouldn’t take any money from PACs or federal lobbyists.
According to the Federal Election Commission, she hasn’t raised any money just yet for the campaign.
