Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) inched closer to a possible 2020 presidential campaign Saturday. Speaking to a packed town hall in Holyoke, Massachusetts, Warren promised to “take a hard look” at the race after the midterm elections, according to the Boston Globe‘s Victoria McGrane:

Warren reportedly cited her Republican colleagues’ coddling of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in her decision, and said it was time for a woman at the top of the federal government. “I thought, time’s up.”

Warren is also up for reelection this fall, though she is expected to win easily. The comments Saturday are a reversal of sorts; in April, she promised to serve out her full term if reelected this fall.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and it's truly crunch time: About 15 percent of our yearly online giving usually comes in during the final week of the year, and in "No Cute Headlines or Manipulative BS," we explain why we simply can't afford to come up short right now.

The bottom line: Corporations and powerful people with deep pockets will never sustain the type of journalism Mother Jones exists to do. And advertising or profit-driven ownership groups will never make time-intensive, in-depth reporting viable.

That's why donations big and small make up 74 percent of our budget this year. There is no backup to keep us going, no alternate revenue source, no secret benefactor. If readers don’t donate, we won’t be here. It's that simple.

And if you can help us out with a donation right now, all online gifts will be matched thanks to an incredibly generous matching gift pledge.
