Elizabeth Warren is an American politician and has been a United States senator from Massachusetts since 2013. She was a Democratic candidate for president in the 2020 US presidential election
Her campaign slogan “Persist” (a variation of which is seen here on this button) was a tongue in cheek reference to a 2017 comment made by Republican Senator Mitch McConnell regarding Warren's persistent and vocal opposition to the nomination of Jeff Sessions for Attorney General. The phrase "Nevertheless, she persisted" went viral and was quickly adopted by Warren's supporters and feminists overall.
Warren's presidential campaign platform aligned with her progressive politics and included pushes for single-payer health care, a $15 minimum wage, the cancellation of student debt, and the end to lobbying in Washington. After a disappointing third place finish in her home state's primary on Super Tuesday, Warren suspended her presidential campaign in March, 2020.
