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.
