Sen. Elizabeth Warren has the seed money and contacts in place, and her aides have been shopping for a presidential campaign headquarters in Boston, and all that's left for her to do is say yes, according to sources close to her.

“It looks like she has her national apparatus in place and all she has to do is pull the trigger,” Jim Demers, a New Hampshire-based consultant who served as state campaign co-chair for Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, told Politico.

“I think a big part of it is, there’s a lot of candidates who are going to do some hard thinking over the holiday weeks to say it’s a go or not a go.”

Warren has $12.5 million in seed money left over from her recent Senate run, the core of her 2020 team in place, and the email list she's gathered over the past several years. In addition, her team made a $3.3 million investment in digital infrastructure and advertising in her last Senate election.

The Massachusetts Democrat has only said she will "take a hard look" at seeking the presidency, but with her apparatus in place, only Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Kamala Harris, D-Calif., come close to being as ready, notes Politico.

“Let me say that of all the people who are running that I can see from my perspective — and I don’t have visibility into everything everybody is doing — there isn’t anybody who had done more to position themselves for 2020 than she had up to that point,” longtime Barack Obama strategist David Axelrod commented recently.
