Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts Democrat, should reconsider any ambition to run for president, the Boston Globe said Thursday.
In a bluntly worded editorial, the Globe said that Warren “missed her moment in 2016” and there are “reasons to be skeptical” of her prospective candidacy in 2020.
“Warren…has become a divisive figure. A unifying voice is what the country needs now after the polarizing politics of Donald Trump.”
The paper suggested there was a “ceiling” on Warren’s popularity.
New Massachusetts Republican Gov. Charlie Baker collected more votes than Warren in a state that is supposed to be a Democratic haven, the paper said.
A September poll indicated that Massachusetts voters were more enthusiastic about Deval Patrick running for the White House, the paper said. Patrick confirmed earlier Thursday that he won’t run in 2020.
