Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren (MA) pledged on Wednesday to serve out the full extent of her six-year Senate term and not run for president.


The Boston Herald reported that Warren held a press conference in Boston Wednesday afternoon to dispel rumors that she might be readying herself to seek the presidency in 2016.

"I'm not running for president and I plan to serve out my term," said the Harvard professor turned U.S. Senator. "I am working as hard as I can to be the best possible senator I can be."

She was appearing alongside Boston's Mayor-elect Marty Walsh.
