NEW: Warren Rakes in More Than $12 Million in 3rd Quarter

Monday, October 15, 2012

 

Democratic hopeful Elizabeth Warren raised more than $12.1 million in the third quarter of this year to support her efforts to unseat Republican Senator Scott Brown in the highly-contested Massachusetts Senate Race.

More than $7 million of those funds were raised in September, making it the single best month for the campaign's fundraising efforts so far.

“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 for Warren's campaign.

“While Scott Brown has stood with billionaires, big oil and Wall Street – and supports Republican control of the Senate – Elizabeth Warren has been there for middle class families and small businesses. This strong support will help propel the campaign to victory in November.”

According to the Warren campaign, more than 80 percent of donations were $50 or less and more than half were $25 or less. In total, more than 53,000 Bay State residents have given to Warren's campaign, part of over 100,000 donations recorded in the Commonwealth.

The Brown campaign raised $7.45 million during the same period, making it the most successful fundraising quarter for the Republican this election cycle as well. The Brown camp has roughly $10.2 million in cash on hand heading into the final weeks before Election Day.

According to the campaign, nearly 60 percent of the third-quarter contributions came from supporters in Massachusetts.

"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. Our campaign will have the resources it needs to starkly lay out the difference between Scott Brown's proven record of pushing pro-jobs legislation versus Elizabeth Warren's job-destroying policies of higher taxes that would crush our fragile economy."
