Elizabeth Warren plans to take a hard look at running for president

Boston Statehouse

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren says she’ll take a “hard look at running for president” after the November elections.

The Boston Globe reports the Massachusetts Democrat spoke about her future during a town hall in Holyoke Saturday.

Warren, a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, is running for re-election in November against GOP state Rep. Geoff Diehl, who was co-chairman of Trump’s 2016 Massachusetts campaign.

She has been at the center of speculation that she might take on Trump in 2020.

Saturday afternoon’s event in Holyoke was her 36th meeting with constituents using the town hall format since Trump took office.

An attendee asked her if she planned to run for president.

Warren replied that it’s time “for women to go to Washington to fix our broken government, and that includes a woman at the top.”

Patricia Yacovone-Biagi, an attendee from Shelburne Falls told 22News she wants her voice to be heard, “I came specifically because I felt so voiceless this past week, because I still felt like people who are victims of sexual assault weren’t able to speak their truth, even in the venue where Dr. Ford was.”

Warren has held 36 towns halls since President Trump’s inauguration on January 20, 2017
