“One month ago today, we launched this exploratory committee to build a grassroots movement to level the playing field. On Sat, February 9, I’ll be making a BIG announcement about my 2020 plans. Sign up now to be the first to know where I'll be making it,” Warren tweeted. 

Warren, who is likely to announce that she is officially entering what could be the most crowded Democratic primary in modern history, was the first high-profile Democrat to announce her intentions.

Warren has already sought to boost her progressive bona fides and separate herself from the rest of the pack by proposing an “ultra-millionaire tax” last weekend for those with a net worth that exceeds $50 million. 

Though a proven fundraiser and party heavyweight, Warren has still found herself consistently trailing in national surveys, often polling behind Biden, Harris and Sanders.
