Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, currently running a distant third behind front-runner and former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, informed Iowa voters last week that she alone brings an “executive side” perspective to the race.

“Let me remind you, I think I’m the only one who’s running for president who’s actually been on the executive side,” Warren said during a town hall event in Newton, Iowa, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
