“I want a Democratic Party strong enough to compete for every vote, in every race, at every level, in every state, in every election — and I’m willing to do my part to help make that happen,” Warren said at a DNC dinner in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. 

Warren has criticized the committee in the past, saying last year that the party's 2016 primary was rigged. 

She later walked back the claim, saying it showed "some bias" in the contest between Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonHillary Clinton to Trump ahead of Putin summit: 'Do you know which team you play for?' 10 things we learned from Peter Strzok's congressional testimony Get ready for summit with no agenda and calculated risks MORE and Sen.

The announcement comes as speculation swirls around a potential presidential run from Warren in 2020. 

Warren has publicly positioned herself behind the Trump administration's policies and has called for Democrats to rally around various issues such as immigration, guns and banking regulations. 

However, she has downplayed the rumors, saying she is focused on her reelection bid in November.
