In February 2019, Elizabeth Warren, the senior United States Senator from Massachusetts, announced her campaign for the 2020 Democratic nomination for President of the United States.[1]

Warren announced on December 31, 2018, that she was forming an exploratory committee to consider running for the Democratic nomination in the 2020 United States presidential election.[2]

Warren is regarded as the first major Democrat to announce the formation of an exploratory committee, which she did in a video on December 30, 2018.[3] In this video, she says that "America's middle class is under attack" in explaining her populist economic agenda.[4]

After failing to win any primary contests and low poll numbers, Warren dropped out of the election on March 5, 2020.[5]

On April 15, 2020, she supported Joe Biden for the Democratic nomination.[6]
