Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has a simple message for voters: cast your ballot for the candidate you like best.

The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate was in Detroit on Tuesday evening, visiting Michigan one week ahead of the state's March 10 primary. She has yet to win a Democratic primary, and was looking for a strong showing Tuesday night in California, Texas, and her home state of Massachusetts.

Warren has been arguing that despite trailing in polls, she could win the Democratic nomination and go on to defeat President Trump in November. She told the crowd in Detroit that people need to set aside their worries about "electability" and support the candidate whose beliefs and values align with their own. "Cast the vote that will make you proud," she said. "Cast the vote from your heart. And vote for the person you think would be the best president of the United States."
