Elizabeth Warren Going for a Third Senate Term
Guess she won’t challenge Biden in 2024.
I guess Sen. Elizabeth Warren won’t challenge Biden in 2024.
The progressive senator announced her re-election campaign on Monday for the seat she’s held since 2012. She claims they have a lot of work to do to target those evil rich people (but not her!):
“I first ran for Senate because I saw how the system is rigged for the rich and the powerful and against everyone else,” Warren says in the clip.
“Now, I’m running for Senate again because there’s a lot more we’ve got to do: Pass a wealth tax. Make child care affordable. Protect our coastal communities. And build a 21st-century transportation system across all of Massachusetts,” she said. “Oh — and like I’ve been saying for years — put stricter rules on banks so they don’t crash and hurt working people.”
The video includes Rep. Ayanna Pressley and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu.
We’ve won some big victories for working families in Massachusetts and across the country, but there’s a lot more to do. So today I’m making it official: I’m running for re-election to keep up the fight. pic.twitter.com/ebG3vJCot3

Politico reported that a February poll in Massachusetts “showed fewer than half of Massachusetts residents” wanted her to run for a third term.
However, 69% of the Democrats support Warren. She has an 83% favorability with Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
I’d settle for a half-decent 20th century transportation system across Massachusetts.
There is one. It’s called roads, highways, and interstate.
I agree those exist, but they are in terrible shape. One of my homes is in Massachusetts. The political corruption makes it the most expensive state in the country to build or maintain roads. Massholes pepper the road surface and voting booths.
NYS — “Challenge accepted.”
Hm. As an ardent RVer, I haven’t found MA highways to be all that exceptional one way or the other.
For sheer rhythmic butt-cracking pounding, it’ a tie between the PA Turnpike west and I-10 from Lake Charles to the Texas border — it’s the automotive equivalent of 19th century mine drilling. On the other side of the spectrum — constant “repair” roadwork along with “permanent” lane closures — Connecticut wins, hands down. I believe they even put “The Construction State” on their license plates.
Of course, maybe all that proves is that Massachusetts can still get a credible job done when it greases an insanely inordinate number of palms.
Apparently Fuzzy hasn’t spent much time in MA…
The roads here are abysmal and the traffic is soul crushing (it is back after a Covid break).
Mass Pike (I90), as a toll road, used to be the exception but even that is crappy now.
Maybe they could build half a transportation system like California, say Lee to Sturbridge.
The roads in Old Sturbridge Village are smoother.
I’ve run my truck across the Mohawk Trail, RT 2, many times and it works fine. I90 also gets it done
It doesn’t matter who runs because Democrats vote in lockstep in any case.
Over many moons, Fauxcahontas has done nothing but display heap big narcissism and insufferable nagging.
Listening to five seconds of this utterly vile, useless and insufferable termagant’s/harridan’s/shrew’s Dumb-o-crat sermonizing and self-aggrandizing prevarications is enough to make any sane person commit seppuku with a dull butter knife.
All these years later she continues to use the “rigged system” talking point without the slightest sense of irony.
She does resemble an older version of iron eyes cody
Real name Espera Oscar de Corti, and no more of a Native American than Al Capone – or Warren – but at least he could look like one.
But she does speak with the proverbial forked-tongue.
How this horrid, corrupt fraud remains in high office is amazing.
Elizabeth Warren’s Pow Wow Chow ‘Cherokee’ recipes were word for word COPIES of famous FRENCH chef’s techniques:
I guess Sen. Elizabeth Warren won’t challenge Biden in 2024.
For someone who is challenged by a beer bottle, that would have been fun to watch.
There’s a special placein Fauxcahontas’ derriere for that beer bottle.
Of course she is–because she’s a miserable human being and no good at anything else.
“I first ran for Senate because I saw how the system is rigged for the rich and the powerful and against everyone else,”
no kidding–and you certainly didn’t (and still don’t) see yourself as ” everyone else ”
a 24k grifter/liar without a mote of personal honour
She was telling the truth. She saw the grift and wanted a piece of the action for herself.
Fauxcahontas is merely a symptom of a malignant Massachusetts. The people who vote for her are the real carcinogen. smh
Massachusetts is as much of a lost cause as the West Coast 100 miles inland from the ocean. Really a different country.
I see that her diatribe has Hispanic subtitles. But did she do one with Pretendian subtitles?
“…she said. “Oh — and like I’ve been saying for years — put stricter rules on banks so they don’t crash and hurt working people.”
Except for Silicon Valley Bank, and a multitude of financial institutions that send money to the Democratic Partiers.
“put stricter rules on banks so they don’t crash and hurt working people.”
The automobile industry could use someone like her.
Or reduce Federal spending that both spikes inflation and interest rates.
Few Senators are willing to give up their seat for a longshot run for President. That is why they only do it in their 2nd or 4th years, never in the 6th, and why few House members ever run at all. The only exception is when the Senator has dim prospects of reelection. That’s right, Joe Manchin, looking at you.
There have been senators who ran for president or VP in their sixth year, and hedged their bets by running for reelection as well.
Jeff McNally’s book with James Kilpatrick, “A Political Bestiary,” comes to mind whenever Elizabeth Warren’s mug comes up. McNally drew political terms as cartoon animals. “The Reform” was described as akin to a “parson going abroad, smelling faintly of piety and antiseptic.” McNally drew the Reform as a bird with tiny specs, a large beak, dressed in black with a Bible under one arm, and standing on a soapbox with an axe dug into the frame so the end of the handle was almost touching the hip.
She will win because voters know what they are getting. Many will hold their noses and vote for her because at the end of the day, she is nothing if not predictable.
When I saw that it was only her 2nd term, I was surprised. Considering how much damage she has done, I thought it would be at least her 5th run.
Only because Liz stands on the shoulders of Godzilla-like giants Kennedy and Kerry.
Democrats vote abortion as single issue and never seem to get a clue that all of the other stuff comes along with it.
“However, 69% of the Democrats support Warren. She has an 83% favorability with Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents.”
The People of The Apparatus have yet to grapple with, let alone understand, why The Orange Crush won, nearly won, and still has vigorous support. (If they really thoughr he was done, done, they’d ignore him.)
We who would govern ourselves should do better — figure out why this ham-handed harridan still has any support at all. Who supports her in any sense? Why? What are they thinking?
They can stay clueless; they’re already in with their grift. We have to be better.
She will be pushing 80 at the end of her 3rd term. Just what we need another octogenarian Senator.
Don’t any of these people have grand kids?
Do you really want them to reproduce?
Regrettably, Warren did. Wikipedia lists 2 children and at least 3 grandchildren.
I wonder which box they check on their college applications?
“Politico reported that a February poll in Massachusetts “showed fewer than half of Massachusetts residents” wanted her to run for a third term.”
Like THAT means anything in relation to how the ballots will turn out.
Like old Hollywood, Spaghetti
I’m an Indian too,
I’ll be Pimple-tongue, Tale-speinner, Tell-no-truth,
Like those “indians”,
I’m and Indian-ish
Apologies to Irving Berlin and everyone who produced _Annie Get Your Gun_.
I have been to Boston and New England more than once, but I do not like it. I think Warren is a waste but she will likely get voted in again. The state should be smarter and vote for some one new and of a different party. It is time we change who we have in Congress and in the Presidency. I am not sure with the way elections have turned to SELECTIONS in 2020 and 2022 that will not happen in 2024. If it does then it is likely the country will dissolve.
I love Boston, and you might be surprised at how many non-progressive freaks live there (like Southie, the North End, etc.). It used to frustrate me no end back in the Tea Party days (circa 2010ish) that so few of them bothered to vote at all. They just shrugged and figured their vote didn’t matter. I have no idea how many of them there are, but I do know that when they turned out to elect Scott Brown, their vote mattered. That said, make no mistake, these are not conservatives or Tea Party like we were; they are long-time Democrats of the pro-union, JFK variety who didn’t get then that the party had moved to the left (and way more so now; they may be catching on now, but given the recent of election of Boston’s woke nightmayor, I doubt it). Anyway, Boston is gorgeous and loaded with history. I wouldn’t move back there now, or to ANY blue state, but it was great for a while (and I do still miss the seasons, especially the snow).
