Brown, Warren Spar Over Funds Raised
Sen. Scott Brown, Elizabeth Warren raise funds in first quarter.
Senator Scott Brown and challenger Elizabeth Warren have already raised sizable funds in their race to represent Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate.
According to campaign releases, Brown raised $3.4 million in the first quarter of the year, while Warren raised $6.9 million.
Brown's campaign finance director John Cook said in a statement that the people of the state value the senator's independence.
"The people of Massachusetts appreciate the independent, pro-jobs perspective that Senator Brown brings to each issue and they have rewarded him with yet another strong quarter of fundraising," Cook said. "We will once again be outraised by the Hollywood elites and out-of-state liberals that are backing our opponent, but we will have resources we need to run our race."
Warren campaign manager Mindy Myers said in a statement that the fundraising win was a positive step for the challenger.
“The incredible enthusiasm we have seen from people across the Commonwealth who are contributing to this campaign shows the strong grassroots momentum behind Elizabeth’s fight for middle class families,” said Myers. “Scott Brown still has $4 million more in the bank than we do, but this is the kind of support we need to be able to take on the big banks and corporations that are lining up against Elizabeth.”
