Wishing for an Elizabeth Warren Presidential candidacy in 2016? Well you may have to wait a little longer…
“I’m not running for president, and I plan to serve out my term,” Warren said in quotes that were first reported by The Boston Herald and Boston Globe. Warren’s Senate office confirmed her comments.
Warren, who has strong support among some liberals, made her remarks during a news conference with Boston Mayor-elect Martin Walsh.
Warren, a former Harvard law professor who helped launch the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, became a rising star in Democratic politics with her populist views and criticism of Wall Street.
Warren defeated GOP Sen. Scott Brown in one of the nation’s most closely watched and expensive Senate races in 2012. She will be up for re-election in the Senate in 2018, and her current term will end January 2019.0
