The Boston Globe, Warren's hometown newspaper, wrote in an editorial piece last week that the senator's time to run for president had passed, calling her a "divisive figure" and implying that she would not be the strongest candidate in 2020.

“While Warren is an effective and impactful senator with an important voice nationally, she has become a divisive figure," the editorial board wrote.
