With every major rally, Ms. Warren consolidates her place in an exclusive club of presidential candidates who have become crowd pullers, and thrills fans at events that can sometimes feel like rock concerts.

"I believe we Not only have to fight for big ideas in 2020, we need to rebuild our democracy, "she said," and the way we do it gives people a reason to go into the fight and get off the sidelines. "
Early on Monday, Ms. Warren unveiled a comprehensive government anti-corruption plan, a key theme of her campaign, based on a comprehensive anti-corruption package she first proposed last year referred to as "the largest anti-corruption plan since Watergate."
