Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren will seek a second term in 2018. Her announcement came in an email to supporters Friday morning, The Boston Globe reported. 

“The people of Massachusetts didn’t send me to Washington to roll over and play dead while Donald Trump and his team of billionaires, bigots, and Wall Street bankers crush the working people of our commonwealth and this country,” Warren wrote. “This is no time to quit.”

A new poll shows Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren would comfortably beat former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling if he ran against her in 2018.

Schilling has indicated previously that he wants to challenge the freshman Democrat, but said last week that he needed to talk to his wife about it first. There have been no updates about that conversation since.
