"I'm glad you asked that question", Warren responded. "We've got to go big on this". But another voter in the crowd, Leif Erickson, is not so sure she is.
She now faces an arduous battle to raise money and capture Democratic primary voters' attention before Iowa casts its first vote in more than a year.
She has been spending big on social media advertising and, in a classic sign of an impending presidential run, is about to release a memoir. In order to disparage her as a politician, Trump adopted the racially charged nickname "Pocahontas" for Sen. And that is wrong, and it's why I'm in this fight.
People in the room were called by number and able to ask Warren questions. Different from a primary, in which voters simply mark a ballot, the process of caucusing gathers voters together in nearly 1,700 separate simultaneous meetings across the state to discuss party platform issues.
It was reported that her own advisers suggested that she apologize for the DNA test and how it was handled.
While Iowa is expected to soon be overrun with Warren's would-be competitors, this weekend she had the place to herself.

She linked her hardscrabble upbringing to her interest in seeking the White House. "Today a minimum wage job will not keep a momma and a baby out of poverty".
Warren's first week on the campaign trail has also been plagued with fallout from her decision in October to release a DNA test showing she is somewhere between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American. "She wants everyone to have an opportunity".

The Massachusetts Democrat on Friday and Saturday spoke to overflow crowds that appeared eager to hear her economic populist pitch and her denunciations of corporate greed and a corrupt Washington.
