Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., announced her intention to run for re-election on Monday. The 73-year-old man has held the Senate seat since 2012.
Warren made the announcement early Monday morning on Twitter, releasing a slick campaign ad for Massachusetts voters singing her praises. Warren’s ad has fueled speculation that she could mount a challenge to President Biden if she runs again in 2024.
“We’ve won big victories for working families in Massachusetts and across the country, but there’s much more to do. So today I’m making it official: I’m running for re-election to continue the fight.” Warren announced on Twitter.
“Across Massachusetts, Elizabeth is making sure we have a choice,” one voter says in the video.
“Elizabeth doesn’t hang around. She’s always in our corner,” says another.

Warren fueled some speculation in February that she might be planning a repeat presidential campaign in 2024 when she refused to endorse Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
Warren stopped short of endorsing Harris as Biden’s 2024 running mate in a January interview on Boston Public Radio. The radio host asked the senator if Harris should be Biden’s running mate if he were to run for re-election in 2024.

“I really want to leave what makes Biden comfortable in his team,” Warren said. “I’ve known Kamala for a long time. I like Kamala. I knew her when she was the attorney general and I was still teaching, and we worked together on the housing crisis, so we go way back. But they need to…they need to be a team, and my sense is that they are; I don’t mean to suggest that I think there’s a problem. I think they are.”
Warren later backed away from the comments, however, saying she fully supported the Biden-Harris ticket.

“I fully support the re-election of the president and the vice president together and I would never say otherwise,” Warren told GBH News in February. “They are a great group with a strong demand for working families.”
