Run Warren Run says it will close down its field offices in Iowa and New Hampshire, and in what amounts to a final plea of sorts, will give Warren a petition with more than 365,000 signatures asking her to run.

Ben Wikler is the Washington director of, the group that launched the effort. Listen above to his full conversation on WBUR's Morning Edition.
