Elizabeth Warren Insists She's Not Running For President

Posted: Apr 01, 2015 5:00 PM

Sorry, people who were hoping Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) would run as the Hillary Clinton alternative in 2016. In an interview on the Today show she made it clear: she is not running and enjoys her current position as a member of the Senate.

No. I'm not running and I'm not going to run. I'm in Washington. I have this really great job and a chance to try to make a difference on things that really matter.

Well there you have it.

Warren had been urged by progressives to run for president, especially in light of Clinton's various controversies. Warren, comparatively, has much less baggage than Sec. Clinton.

No Democrats have declared their intention to run in 2016.
