U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, mid-way through her first term as the state’s senior senator, would not commit to seeking re-election in 2018 during a Sunday morning television appearance.

“Too early to talk about that,” Warren told WBZ host Jon Keller during a sit-down interview in which talked about everything from her efforts to steer the national conversation around student debt and protecting Social Security to the Iran nuclear deal and the 2016 presidential election.

When pressed on her thoughts about a second term, Warren said, “Hey, what I will say is I’m committed to getting out every single day and fighting for the families who sent me.”

When Keller asked her bluntly whether she didn’t want to answer the question about seeking re-election, the Cambridge Democrat agreed: “I don’t want to answer that question,” she said.

The interview was taped last week before reports of Warren meeting with Vice President Joe Biden at his Washington, D.C. home over the weekend as the vice president weighs whether to enter the Democratic primary for president.
