Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said that she would consider running for president at a town hall in Holyoke, Massachusetts, on Saturday. "After November 6, I will take a hard look at running for president," Warren said, to an extended standing ovation from her audience. 

This is the first time that Warren has publicly said that she is considering a presidential bid.

Warren is considered a potential frontrunner in a Democratic primary race, along with former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders. Warren is known for her progressive politics and her populist views on the economy.

Warren has previously said that she was not running for president in 2020. As recently as August, Warren said she was "not running for president in 2020. I am running for the Senate in 2018. The important fight coming up right now is the midterm election."
