MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - A group hoping to get Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren into the Democrat mix for president is launching its New Hampshire effort.
Democracy for America and MoveOn.org have joined up to create "Run Warren Run," hoping the first-term senator will enter the 2016 nominating contest.
The movement will meet at noon Saturday in Manchester to begin the effort.
Warren, who is popular with the progressive wing of the party, has repeatedly said she is not running for president. Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is the biggest potential name in the party and most other Democrats seem to be waiting to see if she'll run again before entering the race.
MoveOn plans to spend $1 million on its Warren effort, and Democracy for America has pledged $250,000.
