The Boston Globe -Sen Elizabeth Warren’s local newspaper- threw cold water on the liberal legislator’s political ambitions Thursday; saying she’s become a “divisive figure” who should abandon her potential 2020 run for the White House.
“While Warren won reelection, her margin of victory in November suggests there’s a ceiling on her popularity; Governor Baker garnered more votes than her in a state that is supposed to be a Democratic haven,” writes the Globe. “Meanwhile, a September poll indicated that Massachusetts voters were more enthusiastic about [former Gov. Deval] Patrick making a White House bid than Warren.”
“Warren missed her moment in 2016, and there’s reason to be skeptical of her prospective candidacy in 2020,” adds the Boston Globe. “While Warren is an effective and impactful senator with an important voice nationally, she has become a divisive figure.”
The article comes as her top advisors reportedly urged the firebrand lawmaker to “apologize” to Native American groups and others for publicly releasing the results of her DNA test.

“I didn’t really think much about it. But if she’s less than one tenth of one percent, I think I can beat her,” he added.
REPORT: Sen. Warren’s Advisors Urge Her to ‘APOLOGIZE’ for DNA Test
Firebrand Senator and potential 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren’s advisors are reportedly urging the progressive lawmaker to “apologize” for her recent DNA test; saying she needs to repair her relationship with Native Americans and other groups should she launch a bid for the White House.
According to the New York Times, “Advisers close to Ms. Warren say she has privately expressed concern that she may have damaged her relationships to Native American groups and her own standing with progressive activists, particularly those who are racial minorities. Several outside advisers are even more worried: They say they believe a plan should be made to repair that damage, possibly including a strong statement of apology.”
“There have been a lot of thoughtful conversations about this, and I appreciate that,” Warren told the Times. “I believe for everyone in public life that transparency is crucial.”
“I put it out there. It’s on the internet for anybody to see. People can make of it what they will. I’m going to continue fighting on the issues that brought me to Washington,” she deflected.
