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.
