Sen. Elizabeth Warren Announces 2024 Re-Election Campaign

Senator Elizabeth Warren(D-Mass.) announced that she is running for a third term in 2024. Warren, a prominent voice for the liberal wing of the Democratic Party and failed 2020 presidential contender, said she seeks to make the economy work for the middle class and protect democracy.

“The last ten years have taught us that when we organize, when we hold those in power accountable, when we fight righteous fights, then we can make positive change,” Warren said in her announcement on Twitter. “That’s why I’m running for Senate.”

The 73-year-old had more than $2.3 million in her campaign account at the end of 2022, according to reports by the Federal Election Commission.

In her announcement, she talks about her goals, including passing a wealth tax on billionaires, making childcare universally accessible and affordable, preparing for climate emergencies, and improving Massachusetts’s transportation system. 

The announcement included constituents and lawmakers praising Warren’s fight to cancel student loan debt and support infrastructure projects in Massachusetts. Democratic allies from Massachusetts like Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, and fellow Senator Ed Markey joined Warren’s campaign ad to show support.

“Elizabeth is my partner in the Senate, and I have seen this perpetual energy machine up close,” Markey said. “Passing a tax on greedy corporations paying zero taxes? She got it done.”

For now, no-high profile Republicans have joined the race, but it would be a tough campaign against Warren in a Democratic-leaning state like Massachusetts. President Joe Biden won by almost 34 percentage points in the 2020 elections, and Warren won re-election in 2018 by 24 points. 

Warren first won in 2012, defeating incumbent Republican Senator Scott Brown, who was elected to fill out the term of Democratic Senator Edward Kennedy, who died in 2009. 

This win made the then-Harvard Law School Professor the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts. 

In her announcement video on Twitter, Warren said, “I first ran for Senate because I saw how the system is rigged for the rich and powerful and against everyone else. I won because Massachusetts voters know it, too. And now I’m running for Senate again because there’s a lot more we’ve got to do.”
