In her endorsement, Pressley said Warren’s plans are about "power, who has it, who refused to let it go, and who deserves more of it.” 

“For Elizabeth and for me, power belongs in the hands of the people," Pressley said. "That's why she's fighting for fundamental change that restores power to those who've been left behind and centers those who've never had access to it in the first place."

Pressley is slated to make her first appearance on the campaign trail with Warren at a town hall meeting in Raleigh, N.C., on Thursday, according to BuzzFeed News
