Elizabeth Warren Won’t Commit to Serving Another 6 Years in the Senate

The Massachusetts Democrat is widely viewed as a leading candidate to run for president in 2020.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) faced off against her Republican challenger during a Massachusetts Senate debate Tuesday night. Unsurprisingly, the question of Warren’s White House ambitions came up.

“Will you serve your full term if you’re elected next Tuesday?” the moderator asked during a rapid-fire portion of the debate.

“So, I’ve already said that I will take a look at running for president after the election,” Warren began. “But I guarantee you this: no matter what I do, I will work for the people of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.”

Warren’s Republican opponent Geoff Diehl shot back a clever response when the question came to him.

“The answer for me is, ‘Yes,'” Diehl said. “But since she got a few extra words in there – ironically, my opponent and President Trump do have something in common: neither one wants to be senator from Massachusetts, but both want to be president.”

While the issue is unlikely to derail Warren’s reelection efforts, a majority of Massachusetts voters have said they do not want Warren to run for president. A Suffolk University poll in September found 58 percent of Massachusetts voters said Warren shouldn’t run for president, while just 32 percent think she should.
