Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts sidestepped answering whether or not she would serve her full six-year term if re-elected to the Senate in November, as speculation that she will run for president in 2020 increases.
During an interview with WBUR on Tuesday evening, host Maria Garcia asked Warren if she would commit to completing her term.
“I am running for Senate right now. I’m serving the people of Massachusetts as hard as I can, every single chance I get,” Warren replied. “That’s what I’m doing down here in Washington.” (RELATED: Massachusetts Policy Chiefs Fire Back After Elizabeth Warren Calls The System Racist)
“This idea that it’s all about what’s going to happen every four years I think just takes people away from the importance of these midterms,” she continued.
Warren, a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, is running for her second term as Massachusetts’ senior senator. She stated in July that she would not run for president, but subsequently hinted otherwise.
“Right now, the Republicans control the House, they control the Senate, they control the White House. Democrats are making a good hard run for their seats, both in Massachusetts and all across the country,” Warren said. “That will make a difference in how this country operates going forward. And I think that’s where we need to keep our focus and that’s certainly what I’m focused on.”
Warren comfortably leads her Republican challenger Beth Lindstrom by more than twenty points.
