Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren announced her reelection campaign on Monday, posting a video announcement on social media featuring prominent local leaders and outlining her goals moving ahead.

With the announcement, Warren is officially seeking to win a third term in office in 2024.

Warren was first elected senator in Massachusetts in 2012, becoming the first woman elected to the senate from the Bay State. She was reelected in 2018.

“I first ran for Senate because I saw how the system is rigged for the rich and powerful and against everyone else. I won because Massachusetts voters know it, too. And now I’m running for Senate again because there’s a lot more we’ve got to do,” Senator Warren said in the video announcement.  “Pass a wealth tax. Make child care affordable. Protect our coastal communities. Build a 21st century transportation system across all of Massachusetts.  Oh, and like I’ve been saying for years — put stricter rules on banks so they don’t crash and hurt working people.”

Warren, 73, had more than $2.3 million in her campaign account at the end of 2022, according to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.

Mass. Sen. Elizabeth Warren says that fraud and theft are "rampant" on Zelle, a platform created by some of the country's largest banks.

It’s unclear who might challenge Warren for the Senate seat. Many Democrats appeared to be waiting until Warren or fellow Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Edward Markey, also a Democrat, decided not to seek reelection. Markey in 2020 fended off a primary challenge from then-Democratic U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy.

The state’s Republican Party is trying to rebuild after losing the governor’s office last year when Republican Gov. Charlie Baker opted not to seek a third term and Democrat Maura Healey handily defeated GOP candidate Geoff Diehl.
