The Boston Globe’s editorial board suggests Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is too "divisive" to run for president in 2020.
“While Warren is an effective and impactful senator with an important voice nationally, she has become a divisive figure,” the editors wrote. “A unifying voice is what the country needs now after the polarizing politics of Donald Trump.”
The editorial cited a statement from former Democratic Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick that he would not be throwing his hat in the ring in 2020.
The piece praised Patrick’s terms in office and said that he “would have been a formidable candidate,” but they urged other lawmakers in the state, including Warren, “reportedly considering presidential runs” to “think carefully before jumping in, too.”
