DES MOINES, Iowa — Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., began to lose her voice Saturday night after she began her campaign swing through Iowa 24 hours earlier.
Speaking to an overflow crowd in Iowa's capital city, the Massachusetts Democrat told the crowd that she got a cold before delivering an abbreviated version of her stump speech.
"I have a piece of bad news: I have a cold," Warren said through an audibly hoarse voice. "Too much time with little people," she added. A spokesperson for Warren said the senator was referring to her grandchildren with whom she had spent the holidays.
