MoveOn.org officials announced Monday that they have garnered 110,000 signatures on a petition urging Sen. Elizabeth WarrenElizabeth WarrenOvernight Health Care: Nearly 100,000 children tested positive for coronavirus over two weeks last month | Democrats deny outreach to Trump since talks collapsed | California public health chief quits suddenly On The Money: Administration defends Trump executive orders | CBO reports skyrocketing deficit | Government pauses Kodak loan pending review Harris favored as Biden edges closer to VP pick MORE (D-Mass.) to run for president in 2016.

The announcement comes just one week after the progressive grassroots group launched a "Run Warren Run" campaign that included a $1 million investment.
Warren has insisted that she will not run for president. And early polling has former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with a huge lead against any Democratic challenger.
But the progressive group's calls for a Warren candidacy illustrate liberals' discomfort with a Clinton coronation, as well as their skepticism that Clinton is too close to Wall Street.
Warren is largely seen as a populist progressive who frequently supports more stringent banking regulations.
