You may have heard Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) isn’t running for president. We have some news for you – as of today, she’s still not running. And her most vocal supporters are finally ready to stop asking.
Run Warren Run, a draft Warren organization run by Democracy for America and MoveOn.org, has spent the last six months calling on the Massachusetts senator to make a White House bid. On Monday, the group will officially throw in the towel after delivering a petition containing 365,000 signatures to Warren’s office on Capitol Hill, the group announced Tuesday.
Progressive Democrats for some time saw the Massachusetts senator as a top potential challenger for presumed Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton. But Warren, who has emerged as a top populist voice in the Senate in recent years, repeatedly dismissed the possibility of a 2016 White House bid. Not that that dissuaded ‘Run Warren Run’ from trying.
