Elizabeth Warren Tries To Court Rural Voters Skeptical Of Urban Elites With Sweeping Broadband Proposal

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has an elitist problem, and she knows it.

Her Boston background makes her a prime target for Republican opponents to brand her as an out-of-touch coastal elite if she were to emerge as the Democratic nominee next fall, a fitting description for a Massachusetts senator with an Ivy League background who lectures on the campaign trail like a college professor. Similar to Hillary Clinton in 2016, Warren is a walking briefing book with a plan for seemingly everything. She even earned a spot for it on the cover of Time magazine in May. The words “I have a plan for that” featured prominently on the page next to a determined, forward-looking Warren. The text has since become an unofficial motto of the Warren campaign.

This week, Warren kicked off her Iowa road trip with the announcement of a new plan to provide high-speed internet access to rural communities, a proposal aimed at expanding the senator’s base as she tries to shed the elitist professor image moving into the next phase of the Democratic primary.

“As we head into Iowa, I’m sharing my new plans to invest in rural communities. It’s time to put their interests ahead of giant companies and Wall Street,” Warren tweeted.
