Warren flew home to Boston late Tuesday, after a Detroit rally. She has no public events scheduled for the day. A senior campaign official told The Hill she would meet with staff to gauge her remaining chances.
"Elizabeth is talking to her team to assess the path forward," the campaign aide said.
Warren has yet to win a single contest, and she suffered disappointing losses in both early voting states and in states that voted on Super Tuesday. She finished an embarrassing third place in Massachusetts, her home state, behind both former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenMan sentenced to nearly four years for running scam Trump, Biden PACs Dole in final column: 'Too many of us have sacrificed too much' Meadows says Trump's blood oxygen level was dangerously low when he had COVID-19 MORE and Sen.

By the end of the night, Warren had accumulated an estimated 50 delegates through both the early states and Tuesday's contests, a tiny fraction of the number that Biden and Sanders added to their hauls.
Biden's strong performances on Tuesday, when he won at least nine of the 15 contests up for grabs, has catapulted him to a commanding lead in the race. He will claim at least 453 delegates, more than Sanders's 382 delegates, with votes still to be counted and delegates still to be allocated in states like California and Texas.
