Sen. Elizabeth Warren changed the name of her campaign Twitter account on Saturday night reigniting speculation that the Massachusetts senator has plans to launch a bid for the presidency in 2020.
Renamed: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) campaign account
— Congress Changes (@CongressChanges) December 30, 2018
@CongressChanges, a twitter bot that monitors any changes to congressmen’s twitter accounts, tweeted that Warren had re-named her account @ewarren. Prior to the change, the account was @elizabethforma, a nod to her home state of Massachusetts.
Warren, who said in June that she would not be running for president, seemingly flipped on her word and announced less than three months later that she would take a “hard look” at launching a presidential campaign following the midterms. During an interview leading up to her November election, Warren refused to commit to serving her full term in the Senate if re-elected.
The Massachusetts senator has also been quietly shopping for office space in the Boston-area to headquarter her possible presidential campaign, according to a report earlier in December.
The list of Democratic senators who are mulling over their own challenge to Trump in 2020 is continuing to grow. Following midterm elections, Democratic Sens. Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota both announced they are considering a presidential run. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York acknowledged that she may be reneging on her promise to serve out her six-year Senate term if she runs and is elected to the position.
Other Democratic senators who are rumored to be planning a presidential run include: Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Kamala Harris of California. Democratic Sen. Jon Tester of Montana predicted that as many as “13 or 14” senators could end up running.
Warren’s office did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
