Brown Claims $1.3 Million In Late Senate Donations

This article is more than 10 years old.

Republican Scott Brown says he raised $1.3 million in a 24-hour appeal for his U.S. Senate campaign.

The proceeds came in from across the country through a fundraising tool known as a "moneybomb."

Brown claimed 16,800 people gave an average of $78 to his campaign.

He is claiming momentum in his race against Democrat Martha Coakley for the Senate seat held by the late Edward Kennedy. Coakley was traveling to Washington Tuesday for her own last-minute fundraiser.

Independent Joseph L. Kennedy - no relation to the senator - is also a candidate in the Jan. 19 election.
