Will Warren’s presidential run affect Massachusetts constituents?

Boston Statehouse

Senator Elizabeth Warren is getting ready to be sworn-into a second term in the U.S. Senate Thursday, but she is also getting a presidential campaign ready.

Warren announced earlier this week that she was forming an exploratory committee, which is an important first step in the process of running for president.

22News spoke with political consultant Tony Cignoli about whether a Warren run for the White House would have an effect on services for her Massachusetts constituents.

“You’re not going to see a real change in the constituent work of Elizabeth Warren for Massachusetts. She’s conscious of that aspect of what it is to run for president,” said Cignoli.

If Senator Warren stays in the Senate while running for president, she wouldn’t be the first Massachusetts politician to do so.

John Kerry remained in the Senate when he ran for president back in 2004, and Michael Dukakis stayed in the governor’s office when he ran in 1988.

Mitt Romney, who ran for president in 2012, had left the governor’s office office prior to running.
