Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said decisively Tuesday morning that she will not run for president in 2016.

"No, I'm not running and I'm not going to run," Warren said on NBC's "Today." "I'm in Washington, I've got this really great job and a chance to try make a difference on things that really matter."

A hero to progressives, Warren has set herself apart from President Barack Obama on spending and trade. Left-leaning groups and even former Obama campaign staffers have pushed for her to run against presumed Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton. Earlier this month, Democratic lawmakers in Iowa and New Hampshire circulated letters urging her to get in the race.
