BOSTON -- Elizabeth Warren's US Senate campaign today announced that it raised $6.9 million in first quarter 2012 fundraising, more than double the amount raised by incumbent, Republican Senator Scott Brown.
This impressive fundraising effort was fueled by a surge in small, grassroots donations. Between January and March, 83 percent of donations received were $50 or less. Elizabeth Warren outraised Scott Brown in Massachusetts this past quarter, and more than 30,000 people from 350 cities and towns across the Commonwealth have now contributed to the Elizabeth for Massachusetts campaign.
"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 campaign manager Mindy 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."
