NEW: Warren Raises $8.67 Million in Second Quarter

Monday, July 09, 2012

 

Senate hopeful, Elizabeth Warren, raised $8.67 million in fundraising, making this quarter her most successful to date.

This increase in the second quarter of 2012 exceeded her first quarter fundraising by $1.7 million.

More than 40,500 residents of Massachusetts have contributed to her campaign.

“Elizabeth Warren has fought hard to create a level playing field for middle class families. It is those men and women who are fueling this campaign,” said Mindy Myers, Campaign Manager.

The campaign experienced an increase in grassroots donations with 81% of the donations amounting to $50 or less. More than half were $25 or less.

“We still have a long way to go until November 6th, and Wall Street and other powerful interests are going to continue to send their millions to Scott Brown,” Myers said. “But with the power of working men and women in the Commonwealth behind us, we will continue to have the resources we need to compete and win this fall.”

In response, the spokesperson for the Brown campaign, Alleigh Marre, said, "Professor Warren’s campaign is largely dependent on out-of-state, extreme special interests and fellow Occupy protestors who share her radical tax, borrow and spend agenda. Ultimately, however, elections are decided by the voters based on competing visions for our future, and Scott Brown will have the resources he needs to share his pro-jobs message and independent record with voters across the Commonwealth."

Marre added that in light of Friday's weak employment report, "No amount of money can wash away Professor Warren’s support of job-crushing tax hikes that would devastate our economy."

Not only was the second quarter of 2012 Elizabeth’s most successful to date, June was her most successful single month since the start of the campaign. She raised $3.1 million in June alone and now has $13.5 million cash on hand.

According to an email sent on June 29th from the Brown campaign, Warren has raised more than her opponent’s campaign for the past three quarters.
