Warren responded to the question by recounting how she had defeated former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) in 2012, even though she said most Democrats in the state didn’t believe a woman could defeat him.

“I jumped in the race and sure enough the only coverage is about what I’m wearing, about my hair or my voice or if I smiled enough,” Warren said.

The Massachusetts Democrat said that every day she’d seek out a young girl and get down on a knee and tell the child that she’s running for Senate “because that’s what girls do.”

“The way I see it is here we are in a presidential race and you stay after it every day, one might say you persist…and that’s how I’m going to be the first woman elected president of the United States,” Warren said.
