From the moment Donald Trump was officially declared the winner of the 2016 presidential race, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) began posturing like she was already mounting a campaign for the 2020 race for the White House. For several months, she spent as much time traveling and speaking in the early primary states, denouncing the Trump presidency and the evils of the Republican Party.
Some of the recent polls have shown that Warren had very little support for a presidential bid, even among Democrats.
Evidently, she has seen the writing on the wall as she just announced that she was not running for president but would seek re-election to her seat in the Senate.
(The Hill) – Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) on Saturday said she is not running for president, but refused to pledge to serve out a full six-year term in the Senate if reelected in 2018.
In the interview airing Sunday on “Meet the Press”, Warren repeated herself several times when pressed by host Chuck Todd on whether she planned to serve another six years in the Senate.
“So look, I am not running for president of the United States. I am running for the United States Senate,” Warren said.
“But let me actually make a — underline a point on this one, and that is we can’t just be a party that says, “Oh, we’re paying attention about what happens every four years.” …
When Warren was asked if she would commit to six more years in the Senate, she only responded that she was not running for president, but she refused to commit to six years in the Senate. Some are already skeptical of her statement since she refused to commit to six years in the Senate. Hopefully, she will be held to her word.
