Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) received a key presidential endorsement from Iowa's most significant newspaper, The Des Moines Register, with just over a week to go before the state's Democratic caucus. The Register praised Warren's stance on the economy, describing her as a capitalist who supports fair markets and measures economic success not by the stock market or unemployment rate, but "how working families are doing." Warren, said the paper, is "not the radical some perceive her to be." While the Register normally plays a crucial role in Iowa politics, it's endorsement could mean even more than usual this year, per Politico, because of the tightly contested nature of the Democratic primary. Warren, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), former Vice President Joe Biden, and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg all are within striking distance of a victory.
