Boston, MA - Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren may have never intended to run for president in the upcoming 2020 election, but she now says the idea is a consideration.
This past Saturday, in a town hall in Holyoke, Massachusetts, Senator Warren told her audience that she would be taking a hard look at running for president after midterms. This is the first time that Warren has come forward to tell the public she is highly considering running for president.
Senator Warren’s political views are sole-heartedly progressive. She also has populist views on the economy. Due to these two aspects of Warren’s career, she is said to be a potential frontrunner in the Democratic primary race. The two candidates that may have the same potential are former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders.
In previous interviews, Warren has stated that she would not be running for president in 2020. As recently as August, she had stated that she would only be running for Senate come 2018 elections; as far as any other elections, she did not comment. Her primary focus was the midterms.
Many have assumed one major reason as to why Warren may step up to the plate come 2020 presidential elections is because President Trump has taunted her in recent months. Trump has called Warren “Pocahontas” in reference to her Native American heritage. He has gone as far as to request a DNA test from her in exchange for $1 million prior to the potential 2020 matchup.
The event that took place this past Saturday in Holyoke was shocking to most. This meeting had been the thirty-sixth meeting with constituents using the ‘town hall format’ since President Trump became our leader. When an attendee asked Senator Warren what she thought about running for president, Warren came back with potential hope regarding the matter.
Senator Warren believes this country is ready for a woman to take charge. She concluded in her potential presidential candidacy statement that it’s time for women to go to Washington to change our government for the better. Warren thinks a woman should be at the top to promote this change.
