U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, running to become the Democratic presidential nominee in 2020, held her first campaign stop in Indiana on Wednesday morning at the RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum in Elkhart.
As reported by the Elkhart Truth, with Indiana’s primary still 11 months away, Warren was using her trip here and in Michigan a day earlier to tout new policy proposals to create new jobs and develop a bigger green sector to help combat climate change.
“I wanted to be here, in particular, because I have another plan, and this is a plan to produce about 1.2 million new jobs here in America,” Warren said.
Many of those would be manufacturing jobs, according to the senator.
“What better place to come and talk about that than right here,” she said.
Many Democrats have pointed to a lack of effort in Midwestern states, Michigan and Wisconsin in particular, as a reason Hillary Clinton lost to President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.
