Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren's former national finance chief says Warren has rejected a run for president in 2016.

BuzzFeed reported Monday that Paul Egerman has rebuffed interested donors in the last two weeks, telling them that Warren, of Massachusetts, isn't planning to challenge presumed frontrunner Hillary Clinton in a primary despite heightened speculation about such a run.

"It's not gonna happen," BuzzFeed quoted one source as saying.

Warren spoke Thursday at a Democracy Alliance conference, and told Egerman she wouldn't take on Clinton, BuzzFeed reported.

Egerman, a retired software entrepreneur who calls himself an "enthusiastic supporter of Senator Elizabeth Warren" in his biography on Twitter, is the gatekeeper between Warren and big-money donors, BuzzFeed said.

"He’s the guy to ask," one source told the website. "The geese talk to the geese. The bears talk to the bears. And the hippos talk to the hippos."

In an email, Egerman said he had no comment for this story.

Warren has quashed speculation before, most recently in an interview in September.

One attendee at the Democracy Alliance conference told BuzzFeed, however, that donors' focus was less on 2016 and more on next year's races, particularly Wendy Davis' bid for governor of Texas and Michelle Nunn's for U.S. Senate in Georgia.
