Warren Out-Fundraises Brown in Third Quarter by Several Million

Warren out raised Brown by $4.5 million in the third quarter, according to fundraising totals released on Monday by each campaign.

U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren's campaign announced today it has raised more than $12.1 million in the third quarter this year, outraising incumbent Senator Scott Brown by $4.5 million.

Brown's campaign had its best fundraising total to date this quarter, at $7.45 million. The Brown campaign enters the home stretch with approximately $10.2 million cash on hand. 

About 80 percent of Warren's contributors were donation amounts of $50 or less, and $7 million was raised in September alone, the campaign said.

“Tens of thousands of people across Massachusetts have joined this campaign because they know that Elizabeth will fight for them in the U.S. Senate,” said Michael Pratt, Finance Director. "This strong support will help propel the campaign to victory in November.”

Nearly 60 percent of the contributors who donated to Brown during this period are from Massachusetts, according to the Brown campaign. 

“As we head into the final weeks of the campaign, Scott Brown’s message of being an independent fighter for Massachusetts jobs is clearly resonating with voters,” said John Cook, finance director for the Brown campaign. “We are truly humbled by the outpouring of support that has led to our best fundraising quarter to date."

To date, Warren's campaign has raised more than $35 million, while Brown's campaign has pulled in $24 million.

Senator Brown started with over 7 million on hand -so its a pretty close cash match up and easily the most expensive race in the USA.

Wow! The 99% certainly have a lot of money to throw her way. :-)
