Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is trying to court the favor of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, The New York Times is reporting.

Clinton and Warren met in December at Clinton's home in the Washington area, and reportedly met one-on-one, without aides.

Clinton used the meeting, which took place by Clinton's invitation, as an opportunity to garner ideas from Warren about economic policy. The Massachusetts senator is considered by many to be the leader of the populist movement in the Democrat Party.

According to a Democrat, who was briefed on the conversation, Warren described the meeting as "cordial and productive," but Clinton reportedly did not ask for Warren's endorsement for the 2016 presidential election.

Warren is quickly climbing the ladder in the Senate — she was appointed to a leadership role by Minority Leader Harry Reid following the Democrats' loss of Senate control in November.

There is also an active group of supporters who continue to push for Warren to run for president in 2016, even though she still says that she has no plans to run.

Democrats who are part of the "Draft Warren" movement fear that Clinton is too beholden to Wall Street.
