Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren has released a campaign video for her presidential run which touts her relationship with president Barack Obama.

People told me the CFPB could never happen, but it did. I was proud to fight alongside President @BarackObama for middle-class families. I know how to fight—and I know how to win. pic.twitter.com/zYppPvgwtL
The 30 second spot quotes a speech Obama gave in September 2010 to announce Warren, then a Harvard Law professor, would be head of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. It was Warren’s idea to create the agency, but it was not certain she would be picked to helm it.
“She’s a native of Oklahoma and a janitor’s daughter who has become one of the country’s fiercest advocates of the middle class,” Obama said in 2010.
Warren is one of four Senators balancing the campaign trail with the impeachment vote. In New Hampshire this morning, she told a crowd she couldn’t stay long enough to do one of her trademark selfie lines because she had to vote to impeach the president.

Vermont senator Bernie Sanders also spoke about impeachment at a town hall this morning in New Hampshire, which has its presidential primary election on Tuesday. “If Trump gets away with this, I want you to appreciate the precedent that is being established,” Sanders said.

Trial on the Trail: Bernie, who is heading back to Washington in a few hours, starts NH town hall by talking about how the Senate is poised to exonerate Trump later today: "If Trump gets away with this, I want you to appreciate the precedent that is being established."
