Look Who’s Planning to Run Against Trump in 2020!

Surely she can’t seriously think there’s a snowball’s chance in hell that she’ll be able to defeat Trump in a head-to-head election?!

Maybe she does think that.

Otherwise, why would Elizabeth Warren be raising so very much money?

Warren says it’s for her 2018 congressional re-election, but she’s so popular in her home state of Massachusetts as to not need such a big war chest.

The Daily Caller agrees – Warren is preparing for a run on the White House:

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts appears to be angling for a presidential run in 2020, raising historic amounts of money and grooming top political connections within the Democratic Party.

The Massachusetts senator has amassed a campaign war chest of nearly 13 million going into her re-election this year, an amount greater than nearly any senator in modern history.

Warren is adamant that her focus is on her re-election campaign for her Senate seat in 2018.

“I am running in 2018 for senator from Massachusetts,” the senator said in April. “I am deeply blessed that the people of the commonwealth sent me to Washington to fight for them, and that’s what I’ll keep on doing.”

Warren has yet to make a formal announcement for a 2020 run, but she has maintained a national profile throughout Trump’s first year in the White House. Warren took on Trump and Republican leadership during their push to repeal Obamacare, even offering up her name as a co-sponsor for Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont single-payer health care bill.
