Grassroots strength visible in thousands of CERTIFIED signatures from voters across the Commonwealth
BOSTON -- Consumer Advocate Elizabeth Warren stopped by the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s office this morning to deliver 28,378 certified signatures – well above the required 10,000 – to officially secure her spot on the fall ballot. Warren submitted more than double the number of signatures that incumbent Republican Scott Brown delivered earlier this week.
"Our supporters worked their hearts out and went above and beyond collecting more than 28,000 signatures, securing a place on the ballot and spreading what our campaign is all about," said Warren. "I could not be prouder of our team or more energized by the strength of our grassroots movement."
The impressive number of Warren signatures, gathered from every corner of the Commonwealth, showcase the growing grassroots momentum of the Warren campaign and support for Warren as a United State Senator who will stand up to Wall Street and the big banks to fight to level the playing field for working families.
On Monday the campaign announced that $6.9 million was raised in the last quarter alone. More than 30,000 Massachusetts residents from 350 cities and towns have contributed to the campaign with 83% of donations averaging $50 or less.
