Sen. Elizabeth WarrenElizabeth Ann WarrenMore Massachusetts Voters Prefer Deval Patrick for President than Elizabeth Warren Trump's trade war — firing all cannons or closing the portholes? Poll: Most Massachusetts voters don't think Warren should run for president in 2020 MORE (D-Mass.) announced on Wednesday that she will be donating $265,000 to Democrats across the country. 

Warren will donate $5,000 to every state Democratic Party in the U.S. in addition to giving a $15,000 check to the Democratic National Committee. 


“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 ClintonFive takeaways from Cruz, O'Rourke's fiery first debate Heller embraces Trump in risky attempt to survive in November Live coverage: Cruz, O'Rourke clash in Texas debate 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.
