The night may be young, but some elections have been decided very early. In Indiana, Greg Pence is projected to win a congressional seat. In Virginia, Jennifer Wexton is projected to win a congressional seat. In many other states, key races are being decided fairly. In Massachusetts, the same can be said for Elizabeth Warren.
Thank you, Massachusetts! Six years ago, I promised to go to Washington to fight for you every single day. Tonight, let's send the powerful interests a message: We're just getting started.

According to projections, Elizabeth Warren is expected to cruise to reelection in the state of Massachusetts. The Oklahoma City native is projected to have a 31,000 vote lead on her closest competitor, Geoff Diehl. Following the news of her large victory, Warren tweeted, “Thank you, Massachusetts! Six years ago, I promised to go to Washington to fight for you every single day.” She also added, “Tonight, let’s send the powerful interests a message. We’re just getting started.”
With her reelection in the bag, public speculation will now turn to a possible run for President of the United States. In September, Warren told reporters that she would take a “hard look at running for president” after the midterm elections. If she decides to run, she will face stiff competition within her own party. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kamala Harris of California and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York have all been rumored as possible candidates for the 2020 Presidential Election.
