Senator Elizabeth Warren has said she will consider running for President after the midterm elections, but the Massachusetts liberal is already making moves towards a White House bid.
Most notably, former Warren staffers are infiltrating leadership positions in key early primary states.
Warren could start the 2020 race as the Democrat frontrunner.
According to Politico:
“Former staffers to Sen. Elizabeth Warren have joined Democratic state parties in three early-voting states, firming up her grassroots organization in key regions if she follows through on a 2020 presidential run.
Warren alums have taken key positions in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada in recent months. And though Warren has only said she’d take a “hard look” at running for president in 2020 once the November midterms are over, it looks like she’s already building out her ground game.
“She’s putting all the pieces in place. If she does decide to run, she’s off to the races,” political consultant Mary Ann Marsh told me. “She’ll be a force to be reckoned with, no question. These are very smart moves.”
Within the last week or so, former Warren press secretary Saloni Sharma joined the South Carolina Democratic Party as communications director. Nairoby Gabriel, previously a regional director, joined the Nevada Democratic Party as deputy GOTV director.
Former Warren press secretary Gabrielle Farrell joined the New Hampshire Democratic Party as its communications director in August, and former Warren regional director Adrienne Viarengo joined the party as political director in July.”
