The Democratic left will have to look for a new 2016 presidential hero--Sen. Elizabeth Warren says she's not running for president then.
The Massachusetts Democrat had enjoyed a media boomlet in recent weeks, as disenchanted liberals promoted her as a potential White House candidate.
But according to the Boston Globe, Warren has grown tired of the media frenzy.
At a downtown Boston news conference, Warren, elected last year, said "I pledge to serve out my term."
Never miss a local story.
“I am not running for president,” she declared, according to the Globe. “I am working as hard as I can to be the best possible senator that I can be and to fight for the things that I promised during my campaign to fight for.”
Warren had done nothing to spur all the speculation, and the Globe reported she signed a letter urging former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run.
