Democrat Elizabeth Warren on Wednesday pledged to serve out her full term as a senator from Massachusetts, shooting down the possibility of launching a 2016 presidential bid.
“I’m not running for president and I plan to serve out my term,” Warren said at a press conference with Boston Mayor-elect Marty Walsh, as quoted by the Boston Herald.
When further pressed, she reiterated that she intended to serve out her term in Congress, according to the Herald.
“I am not running for president,” she said, as quoted by the Herald. “I am working as hard as I can to be the best possing [sic] senator I can be.”
