The comments are among the firmest of any prospective Democratic presidential hopeful that they could seek the party’s nomination.

Warren has long been considered a darling to the progressive wing of the Democratic Party in a time when many prospective candidates seek to appeal to that part of the party.

Warren is up for reelection this year in the Senate, but it is widely assumed that she will win a second term.
