On Monday, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) announced that she would be seeking reelection again in 2024. Warren has already served two terms in office and has now released a list of actions that she would like to take in the following years if she wins reelection.
Warrant released a video on social media during which she discussed a number of policy items that she wanted to bring forth. These included more of a wealth tax, stricter regulations for banks, universal child care, and improvement to the public transportation system in her state.
In the video, she noted that when she originally ran for Senate, she knew that “the system is rigged for the rich and powerful and against everyone else.” She added that she is running for the Senate again because there are still a lot of things that need to be done in order to bring forth positive changes.
The 2-and-a-half-minute clip also showed a number of other political figures, including Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA)
Warren first won her seat in 2012 and has since become one of the leading voices for the progressives in her party. She won in the 2012 election by defeating incumbent Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) by 7 percentage points, and she won again in 2018 with a 24-point margin. However, despite her success in her state, her presidential run in 2020 did not garner the support she had hoped for.
