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.


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
