Why it matters: It's another win for Warren who, along with 2020 rival Sen. Amy Klobuchar, was endorsed for president by the New York Times last Sunday. The endorsement comes just ahead of the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3.
What they're saying: "Warren’s competence, respect for others and status as the nation’s first female president would be a fitting response to the ignorance, sexism and xenophobia of the Trump Oval Office," the board said in its editorial.
The big picture: Warren's latest endorsement comes after an Iowa poll averages from FiveThirtyEight published earlier Saturday placed Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden neck and neck in Iowa at 20.2% and 20.1%, respectively.
