This is a timeline from The Associated Press of the latest on the 2020 presidential race (all times EDT):

3:45 p.m.

Elizabeth Warren says the Democrats running for president will have to do more than campaign on an anti-Donald Trump message if they want to take back the White House in 2020.

The Massachusetts senator says they’ll have to explain their own vision for the future of the country.

Warren is visiting the early caucus state of Nevada. She tells about 500 people at a rally in a high school gymnasium in Reno that she has an ambitious agenda that would force billionaires to pay a higher share of taxes, strengthen labor unions and protect everyone’s right to vote.

She says it’s important to build a broad grassroots campaign in Nevada and other places now to have a chance to win next year.

Warren says that “if our message is ‘not Trump,’ it’s not going to work.”

Beto O’Rourke may be competing against Pete Buttigieg for the Democratic presidential nomination, but the former Texas congressman is still a fan of the South Bend, Indiana, mayor.

Do you think Beto O'Rourke will win the Democratic presidential nomination?

O’Rourke says “I like him a lot” when he was asked about the fact that the two politicians have a similar message and profile and may be competing for similar voters.

The candidate, who’s making a series of stops in Iowa, says he likes the way Buttigieg is approaching voters and “the seriousness with which he answers questions, the thought that he’s put into it. I think he’s terrific.”

O’Rourke made the comments while leaving a house party in the Des Moines area.
