Warren Tells Guthrie She’s ‘Not Going to Run’ for President in 2016

Elizabeth Warren tells TODAY's Savannah Guthrie that she will not seek the White House in 2016.

Screen Shot 2015-03-31 at 12.15.51 PMThis morning, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was on NBC’s TODAY to discuss her new memoir “A Fight Chance,” but surprise, surprise, she was asked “point blank” by host Savannah Guthrie whether she would run for president in 2016.

“No. I’m not running and I’m not going to run,” Warren said bluntly. “I’m in Washington. I’ve got this really great job and a chance to try and make a difference on things that really matter.”

Among the “things” she mentioned was lowering interest rates on student loans, increased funding for medical research, raising minimum wage, and strengthening social security. “There’s a lot to fight over right this minute,” she continued. “I want a world where every kid gets a fighting chance.”

Warren will appear on the “Rachel Maddow Show” this evening to discuss her book, and probably reiterate her decision not to run for president.
