Elizabeth Warren says she has no interest in presidential run

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) does not have any interest in a bid for the White House, the freshman senator and former Obama adviser told The New York Times.

Warren said repeatedly in an interview with the paper that she did not intend to run for the Oval Office, and that sentiment was reportedly echoed by aides. 

The declaration comes despite Warren's high popularity among the Democratic Party's liberal base, something that would undoubtedly buoy a presidential run. A Quinnipiac poll released last month that measured how warmly Americans felt toward potential 2016 candidates found Warren finishing third, behind only New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
