"That sort of enthusiasm...we haven't detected it much yet," Linskey said.

The Washington Post‘s national political reporter, Annie Linskey, said that there isn’t noticeable enthusiasm for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) presidential run during a panel discussion on CNN on Wednesday.

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota was discussing Warren’s upcoming trip to Iowa, pointing out that some political pundits have suggested that Warren may have missed her opportunity to run for president.

Camerota asked Linskey, who previously reported for Warren’s hometown Boston Globe, if she sensed the same hunger for Warren to run for president today as there was in 2016.

“I think that has changed a little bit. I think there is some truth to that,” Linskey said. “You look back to 2015 and the run-up to the 2016 election, and there was this organization, ‘Ready for Warren,’ really pushing her to run.”

Linskey noted that during many of Warren’s speeches in 2105, she was often interrupted by people urging her to run for president.

“That sort of enthusiasm…we haven’t detected it much yet,” Linskey said about Warren’s 2020 run.

Linskey added that she didn’t think that Warren was ready to run for president in 2016.
