(WWLP) – Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren has won re-election in Massachusetts.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a potential 2020 White House contender, is among a group of five Democratic lawmakers who have easily won re-election to the Senate.

Warren has generated considerable speculation about a possible run for the White House in 2020, recently saying she’d take a “hard look” at a presidential bid after the Senate race was over.

Senator Warren beat out her Republican challenger, State Rep. Geoff Diehl. Hundreds of people packed into the ballroom at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston in support of the senator.

With an early projection in her favor, the mood was upbeat as union leaders, the Mayor of Boston, and the Democratic candidate for Governor, Jay Gonzalez, addressed the crowd before the senator delivers her victory speech.

Warren was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2012. She has been a vocal critic of the Trump Administration and said at a town hall meeting in Holyoke in late September that she would start taking a serious look at running for president after the midterm elections.
